TORONTO, ONTARIO – (September 10th, 2018) – Frank Grimaldi, President of Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 113, today released the following statement in response to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice’s decision to stop Doug Ford’s reckless scheme to attack local democracy in the City of Toronto:

“Toronto’s transit workers are happy with the Ontario court’s decision to put the brakes on Doug Ford’s reckless assault on local democracy. Looking ahead to the election on October 22, it is more important than ever for Torontonians to elect 47 city councillors and a mayor who will stand up and fight for Torontonians, including keeping public transit in city hands. We must work together to stop Doug Ford from stealing our subway system through uploading. Torontonians paid for the subway, they own it – and now we must fight to save it.”
