Doug Ford won’t say what Highway 413 will cost taxpayers​

Building the controversial Highway 413 is a key Progressive Conservative campaign promise, but Doug Ford refuses to say what the freeway will cost.

If it is anything like roadbuilding in BC the government really doesnt have a clue what it will cost. Take your best guess, add a 50% contingency fund and hope it falls somewhere in there.

Every guess every government has ever given for every project has always been wrong. It will cost a lot but we need more roads to whatever. At this point a billion here or a billion there doesn't matter much. After all, our PM says budgets will balance themselves.

Normally what happens is a lowball budget to get it approved. Then, once the project is underway and contracts are signed, all the extras start coming up.
