Del Duca has cited his grandparents as key influences on his political career, stating, “Ontario and Canada gave them a ton of opportunity.

But the other half of the bargain is that this province, this country is supposed to give you a real opportunity.”

Del Duca was appointed to the cabinet by Premier Kathleen Wynne as the Minister of Transportation on June 24, 2014. In this role, he was one of the ministers responsible for the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario history, including $29 billion dedicated to transit and transportation.

In June 2016, the Ministry of Transportation issued a press release about twelve new stations for the GO Transit network, only ten of which had been approved by the Metrolinx board planning the regional transit projects. The board convened in late June to approve the two additional stations, Kirby GO Station for the Barrie line, and Lawrence East station as part of the SmartTrack project. Metrolinx reports stated that the Kirby station would have a negative effect on overall ridership on the line.

Del Duca defended the decision stating that Metrolinx’s original analysis didn’t take into account the explosive population growth planned in Vaughan and Etobicoke, and the transit needs that would accompany this growth. He also noted that a similar economic assessment done by Toronto staff gave the Toronto Relief Line a negative score despite an expert consensus that the project was needed to meet Toronto’s long-term transit needs.
