The province has threatened to break apart the TTC by taking over the subway system we paid for and maintain. Will the province sell off subway assets, like Jeff Yurek, the Transportation Minister, promises and as it did with Highway 407 and Hydro One? The province has already contracted out aspects of transit, like the Presto system and the maintenance of new LRT lines. If they rip-off our subway system, we could see higher fares, reduced service, and less democratic control by Toronto’s residents.
But we can still do something about this. TTCriders is ramping up the campaign in the new year by organizing subway stop canvases, door knocking, and lit drops. Will you join us?
At this volunteer training we’ll go over ways to engage transit riders on this critical issue and equip volunteers with the tools they need to lead canvasses of their own. The training will last for an hour and then we’ll canvass at Osgoode station.
There’ll be snacks and tokens.
