Canada Line – Vancouver
- Romaine Hydroelectric Complex Project $6.5 Billion
- Hydro Quebec’s monster generating project in North-eastern Quebec. 1550 MW with a completion date of 2020.
- Bruce A Nuclear Generating Station Restart $5.25 Billion
- Refurbishing of two CANDU reactors 250km north of Toronto on Lake Huron and construction of two additional reactors to be completed by 2013. It will increase nuclear powers share of Ontario’s power to 25%.
- Eastmain-1-A/Sarcelle/Rupert Project $5 Billion
- Yet another Hydro-Quebec mega project! 918MW of hydro-electric goodness built on the Rupert River.
- Spadina Subway Extension $ 2.63 Billion
- Toronto’s first extension of their subway network outside city limits into the York Region.
- Albert Clipper Project $2 Billion
- Big ass Enbrdige crude oil pipeline to from Alberta to the United States. Slated to be competed in 2010, it is expected to transport approximately 800,000 barrels a day.
- Canada Line $2 Billion
- Probably the best thing about the 2010 Olympics. A underground/at grade rail-transport system will connect downtown Vancouver with Richmond and the Vancouver International Airport.
- Port Mann/Highway 1 Project $1.6 Billion
- The Canada line may be a great step forward in terms of sustainable transportation, but that is probably going to be erased by the lane expansion of the Port Mann bridge. Nothing like four more open lanes to get one into their car!
- Keephills 3 Generating Plant $1.6 Billion
- Tasty coal fired power! In Alberta, of course. Apparently clean, due to be online in 2011.
- Autoroute 30 $1.5 Billion
- Quebec is home to 30% of the top projects in Canada. Private-Public highway project in the Montreal area.
- Edmonton Ring Road $1.42 Billion
- Roads make people happy! 27 bridge structures, 2 rail crossings, five fly-overs, and eight interchange.
Kingston, clocking in at a mere 152,000 souls managed to make the top 100 three times! First at #37, the Wolfe Island Wind Project with a price tag of $450 million. I’m watching this baby go up across from my basement suite. Second is the the renovation and expansion of Kingston General Hospital ($142 million) and at #85 Queen’s own Queen’s Center Phase One at $115 million – which apparently is now up to $250 million, but that could include phase 2….I am not entirely sure.
