As early as next week, Bill 5—Premier Ford’s plan to slash Toronto City Council—could become reality, not just mere talk.
Bill 5 is about more than saving money for taxpayers. It’s all about provincial control, similar to Ford’s plan to take control over our subways.
Join TTCriders at Metropolitan United Church (56 Queen Street East) next Thursday, August 16th between 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM for a crucial public meeting that will explore challenges to the Bill and how all of us can take action.
Note: TTCriders is a democratic volunteer-led organization of transit riders.
If you can’t join the public meeting next Thursday, below are upcoming TTCriders events you should know about:
Between now and October 22nd, members of TTCriders and other community members are meeting with City Council candidates to ask if they support fair TTC funding and fighting back against the province’s takeover of our subway system. Sign up to meet with candidates in your neighbourhood.
