On March 27, despite rainy weather, over 100 transit users came together in support of TTCrider’s Sardine Ride and Rally. ATU Canada and Local 113 Sisters and Brothers ‘sardined’ into overcrowded transit to take the message directly to the City of Toronto and Ontario governments that Torontonians deserve a fairly funded transit system. Armed with signs and sardine costumes, the Ride and Rally received media coverage from CityNews and CTV News.
A day after the ride, Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal government released the 2018 Ontario Budget, which included a break on GO Transit fares, but in an interview with CityNews, the TTCriders say the budget still fails to make the TTC more reliable and affordable.
ATU Local 113 will always stand in solidarity with those who fight for a fairly funded transit system that works for everyone. Learn more about TTCriders and their advocacy initiatives here.
