City hall’s political brain trust has approved a $3.6-billion Stage 2 rail and road package, with one councillor laying the groundwork for Barrhaven LRT in the next transit plan.

Friday’s 11-0 vote of council’s finance and economic development committee, which includes all the committee chairs, was the first political test of the final blueprint to extend rail east, west and south.

Council will now vote March 8, but it’s clear councillors are already thinking about a future Stage 3.
