Quebec pledges to fund Gatineau's light rail plans

By CBC News Ottawa, June 9, 2019

The Quebec government has pledged to fund 60 per cent of an ambitious $2.1-billion project to bring light rail to Gatineau, Que.

Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin announced on social media Saturday morning that he'd secured the funding promise from Premier François Legault for the 26-kilometre network, which the city hopes to have up and running by the end of the next decade.

"It's great news, because the Quebec government has never been as clear as Mr. Legault was yesterday," Pedneaud-Jobin later told Radio-Canada.
