Oxford County staff will bring forward a report Wednesday seeking approval for the county to take the lead in advancing a proposal for an integrated high-performance public transportation system for southwestern Ontario. The Southwestlynx proposal, developed by On Track Strategies for Oxford County, puts forward a transportation connection to Toronto that optimizes existing rail corridors. This approach, known as high-performance rail, is more cost-effective, practical and implementable than the current high-speed rail proposal. A Southwestlynx service would also integrate inter-community bus service to improve transportation links for people living in smaller communities.

Premier-designate Doug Ford says he'll be consulting with municipalities, stakeholders and his caucus before deciding whether to change the plan the outgoing Liberals laid out for the sale of marijuana.

The New Democrats, who had criticized the Liberal plan, are calling on Ford to show Ontario a plan that fixes the one the Liberals messed up.

The N-D-P says it'll push for a legal cannabis sales plan that promotes social responsibility and community safety, while effectively ending demand for illegal sales.

The federal government announced this week that Canadians will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana starting on October 17th.
