That's a municipal or provincial concern, not federal.

Provinces/territories and the fed should contribute

Depends. Not at the cost of the environment.
@938QWQZfrom Ontario answered…6mos
Yes, but only in municipalities that meet population growth and densification targets

We should work toward making private vehicles more affordable, lower the price of gasoline and expand roadways to be more commuter friendly.

No, that’s municipal jurisdiction

Yes, although degrowth or build-down would be best

Add funds as the province and city decides what projects to pursue.

This type of infrastructure is best kept in cities

This should be left to the municipalities

No, private sector or municipal and provincial governments are to handle that

If transportation is a federal government issue, then it should be applicable to both urban and rural settings.
@8VN68SHfrom Ontario answered…1yr
I think the government should invest in public transport, but what kind of transport should be up to each city, whether they want commuter rails or not.
@8VMW7J2from Ontario answered…1yr
no they clearly suck at it
@8VJNWNBfrom Alberta answered…1yr
Yes, but transportation services should be a revenue source

as long as it can be done safely.
@8SCRSMGfrom Ontario answered…2yrs
Yes but it should not be prioritized

Should be provincial jurisdiction

Maybe in the future but I don't see a need for it at the moment

Yes, as long as the land of the indigenous allows the government to do so and is fair for both

Improve urban commuter transportation systems and start working towards high speed hyperloop rail systems between cities.
