Clive Doucet launches mayoral campaign with promise of regional rail service, lower transit fares
Mayoral candidate Clive Doucet is making transit a cornerstone of his campaign.
Doucet officially launched his bid for mayor of Ottawa Thursday, with the slogan “A City for Everyone.”
His main plank is a regional rail system, akin to the GO Train in the GTA. Doucet wants to use existing rail infrastructure to send commuter trains to Smiths Falls, Limoges, Kinburn, and Chelsea.
“My plan will remove 20,000 cars from the 417, making it easier and safer for Ottawa residents to get to work, whether they are taking transit, driving or cycling,” Doucet said in a press release.
Part of Doucet’s plan involves getting abandoned rail lines operational again.
Doucet is also promising to lower transit fares, expand free service for senior citizens, and extend the student U-Pass program to part-time post-secondary students.
现在一二十年（很可能三四十年）看不出来从smith falls, Limoges, Lorrain, Chelsea, Fitzroy, Kinburn来通勤的旅客的票钱能不能抵上20%的油钱，更不用说铁轨车辆的折旧维护钱了。不知道哪位老板的身家能建造维护运营的起这样偏远的线路。这里又不是大多伦多。
