    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Region Chairman Alan Caslin is continuing to push for regular Toronto to Niagara Falls GO train service to be up and running in time for the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

    However, Metrolinx — the arm’s-length provincial agency that operates GO Transit — isn’t committing to any changes to its originally proposed timetable.

    “We are aware of the request to launch service by 2021 instead of 2023 as promised, but it’s too early to say at this point,” said GO spokeswoman Anne Marie Aikins, adding Metrolinx is going to provide a full update on GO expansion in the fall.

    This isn’t exactly related to the main Niagara Falls tourism district, but if a large event is held in the region, it would certainly bring a lot of tourists.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Region has put its support behind a bid to host the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

    Council committed $85,000 Thursday to have Niagara Sport Commission develop a formal bid proposal for the two-week competition.

    The funds will allow the commission to develop preliminary and comprehensive bid proposals that, if approved by council upon completion, will be submitted for consideration.
