In a new column for the Toronto Star, President Carlos Santos calls for emergency funding for transit from governments, writing that TTC workers are being asked to “keep bearing the burden of working on the frontlines while refusing to guarantee the paycheque necessary to keep a roof over their heads. We all know this is unfair.”

“Our city can’t afford service cuts today and it can’t afford the risk of our transit system not being ready for when people head back to work. The federal and provincial governments need to step in and do the right thing for Torontonians — provide emergency relief funding for the TTC today.”
