The full interview with bonus material:

Northumberland Peterborough South MPP David Piccini and Transportation Minister Carolyn Mulroney stood in front of a green GO bus and several municipal leaders. The message was simple. Northumberland County residents were getting a long-awaited connection to the GO station in Oshawa.

It is a milestone announcement, especially with a provincial election only days away.

In this interview, you will hear from county warden Bob Crate. He was at that press conference. He will tell you a different story.  He will explain how local taxpayers are footing the majority of the $300,000 bill for a pilot project for a regional bus system. Yes, it will take people to the Oshawa GO station. But don’t expect to see any of those green buses from the press conference. By the way, the province is kicking in $50,000.
