High-speed rail for Windsor and Southwestern Ontario got one step closer Friday morning.

Ontario has appointed the Honourable David Collenette as a special advisor to assist the province in bringing high-speed rail to the Windsor, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Toronto corridor.

Collenette who is a former federal Minister of Transport, will work with public and private sector stakeholders, as well as First Nations and M├ętis partners, to identify economic development opportunities associated with high-speed trains, assess international experience with high-speed rail and provide advice on a preliminary business case and potential financing models.
