FCM - FCM welcomes NDP call for federal leadership on public transit: "The average Canadian spends almost 32 working days a year commuting to and from work. According to a 2011 report by the Toronto Board of Trade, Metro Montréal and the Greater Toronto Area have average daily commute times of more than 75 minutes. These are the worst commute times in a ranking of 23 world cities. That costs commuters dollars, time and lost quality of life. It costs businesses trying to move goods and connect with customers. It costs municipal taxpayers, who must pay to build more roads to support increasingly inefficient transportation. And it costs the national economy, because the more time people and goods spend on the road, the less they contribute to the economy."
