Premier Ford is bulldozing ahead with his so-called subway upload scheme, and the one way to stop him is to sign the petition to protect Toronto’s public transit system. Ripping Toronto’s subway from the rest of the public transit system is more bad news for riders. It will be the end of the TTC as we know it with less local control. It could also lead to the privatization of subway services similar to what we see with Metrolinx’s GO system.
Privatization of our public transit system will mean higher fares and reduced service. At a time when our city is desperate for improved and expanded public transit, Premier Ford must give the TTC the funding we deserve while keeping it public – not break it apart.
