"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.
