Kenora MP Bob Nault says he's getting impatient. He'd like to see more movement on twinning the Trans-Canada.
"It's still considered by the Government of Ontario -- if you take 'em at their word -- that it's a priority," he said. "We want this thing moving. We've put a lot of time and effort in speaking to our partners, First Nations and others, about this project. Now we need the Government of Ontario to step up to the plate."
Funding for the project -- which would start at the Manitoba border -- was announced eight years ago.
"I've spoken to Minister Gravelle about this, and he's done an interview of his own, suggeting it is a priority. So, let's get on with the job and make sure, at the very least, by the time we hit 2021 or 2020 we're all ready to go," Nault added.
Late last month, the MP took Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne to task over delays in the project. It marked a departure in the close relationship between federal and provincial Liberals in recent years.
