Learn how you can fight to protect and improve Toronto’s public transit system by attending the TTCriders’ 2019 Transit Summit on Sunday, May 26, co-sponsored by ATU Local 113.
Together, alongside over 100 public transit advocates from across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, participants will develop their skills to advocate for an affordable, accessible and fully-funded public transit system. This has never been more important here in Toronto, where Premier Doug Ford is barreling ahead with his so-called subway upload. Premier Ford’s scheme will break apart the TTC while paving the way towards privatization.
This year’s program includes training sessions on how to build relationships with institutions (led by ATU Local 113’s Deborah Littman), grow movements, train new leaders and advocate for issues with government representatives – like your City Councillor or Member of Provincial Parliament.
When: Sunday, May 26 at 12:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Where: North York Civic Centre, Lower Level
5100 Yonge Street
North York, Ontario
