The premier dropped the dollar figure but the transportation minister will drop the other shoe.
Ford told the Burlington, Halton Hills, Oakville, and Milton Chambers of Commerce Tuesday, the price tag of what he calls ”the largest transit project in North America,” before saying the remaining details will be released Wednesday by Transportation Minister Jeff Yurek.

But Toronto Mayor John Tory says he won’t be on hand for the announcement because he has not been told what’s being unveiled.
Yurek disputes that, claiming the province is keeping the city in the loop.
Councillor Mike Layton sides with the mayor, saying the province is holding the city ”hostage” with this ”mystery plan.”
