WATCH: PC's predict Pan Am traffic 'pandemonium'
The Tories calls on the government to release a plan to address gridlock
1 0

If you think traffic is bad now, Ontario's Tories say it will be "pandemonium" when the Pan Am Games take place next year.

Progressive Conservative Pan AM Critic Rod Jackson says it's clear the Liberals have no transit plan for the international sporting event.

Jackson says it will be embarrassing for tourists to see the traffic chaos that will cripple the city, much as it does when there is no international event in town. He says it won't put Toronto in the best light.

The province says shovels are in the ground for a number of projects around the city, pointing specifically to the Air-Rail link that will go from downtown Toronto, to Pearson Airport.

    I wonder if there could be any positives about the forecast PAN-AM gridlock.
    Maybe :
    1. More bars being filled needing to unwind after spending hours in traffic.
    2. Tourists staying in town longer to spend money as they can't get to the Airport.
    3. Money saved from not building any transportation aids.
