It looks like reduced traffic will be a welcome side effect of a provincial goal to get cars off the road to reduce emissions.

If the Liberal government gets its way, you will see thousands of drivers choose public transit according to the premier.

The Premier points to increased commuter train service in the GTA and beyond as one way to decrease traffic and emissions.

Kathleen Wynne maintains they're making public transit more appealing to drivers.

But the province's Environmental Commissioner says Ontario isn't doing enough and even though this year's emission targets will be met.

Gord Miller says emissions are expected to rise which means the province won't meet targets set for six years from now.

In his annual report, Miller says the province needs to do three things to improve: build more efficient communities, electrify forms of transportation and report on environmental achievements.

Miller says climate change is real, pointing to severe weather as seen in flooding in Toronto as well as Tornados in Southern Ontario.
