This year we estimate 107 trail projects worth 21 million dollars in Ontario. Today we participated in the Ontario government announcement by Premier Wynne, of 3.5 million for a Pan Am Legacy Trail, which is part of the Trans Canada, Waterfront and Toronto Region Conservation Authority systems. This will help complete the Trans Canada Trail in Ontario by their target date of 2017. Ontario Trails Council has logged 100,000's of kilometers of travel in support of the TCT in Ontario over the past decade. We are pleased to see OTC Members, TRCA, TCTO, City of Toronto, Waterfront Trail and Pan Am Path all benefit through this significant provincial investment in GTA Trails. Thanks Ontario!http://news.ontario.ca/opo/en/2013/10/ontario-expanding-trails-in-time-for-the-peoples-games.html?utm_source=ondemand&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=p
