ATU Local 113 is pleased to announce our endorsement of Kevin Rupasinghe for the upcoming Scarborough Southwest City Council by-election. We are confident Kevin will fight to keep transit public, protect jobs, and invest in TTC service.
The last several years have been extremely difficult for the TTC. The pandemic was a difficult time for public transit, but chronic underfunding and weak leadership made it even worse. In Mayor Olivia Chow, we have a strong advocate for public transit and an ally to workers – but she needs supporters on City Council to restore and improve service so that we can rebuild trust with TTC riders. We are endorsing Kevin Rupasinghe for City Council because he is the only candidate in Scarborough Southwest with a vision for the future of the TTC and how we can build a sustainable city where everyone has access to affordable, frequent, and reliable public transit.
On November 30, please vote for Kevin Rupasinghe. He is the advocate that TTC workers and riders need today.
