McGarry’s mandate: Working on road safety, advising on provincial cycling strategy

Cambridge Times
QUEEN'S PARK – Among MPP Kathryn McGarry’s chief duties are working to “help maintain” Ontario as a leader in North American road safety, and advising on the implementation of the province’s first cycling strategy.
Those are the first two bullet items in a letter to McGarry, made public this week, from Minister of Transport Steven Del Duca. McGarry, who is in her first term of office representing Cambridge and North Dumfries, serves as his parliamentary assistant.
"I am very excited with the mandate letter the minister of transportation has given to me,” McGarry said in a statement prepared for the Times.
“During the June election, transportation was one of the biggest issues not only across Ontario, but also in our community.”
Additional items in her mandate with the ministry include assisting with the establishment of a regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles and stretcher transportation services, as well as the development of recommendations on modernizing and regulating the intercity bus regime.
“Parliamentary assistants play a key role in delivering these priorities and have a responsibility to put our government’s plan into action,” Del Duca wrote in his letter.
Previously, mandate letters have not been made public, but the government has done so in an effort to be more transparent with residents.
