When Premier Doug Ford unveiled his government's massive transit plan last April, it included extensions for two subway lines and made no mention of new light rail projects.

But a new expert panel created by the province to go over the details the nearly $30-billion transit plan doesn't rule out building new rail lines above ground.

The Ontario government wants to extend the Yonge Line north to Richmond Hill and scrap the City of Toronto's plans for a one-stop subway extension to Scarborough Town Centre in favour of one that goes farther and includes two more stops.
