A pair of midtown Toronto councillors are teaming up to host a public meeting on Toronto’s rapid transit plans.
St. Paul’s Councillor Josh Matlow and Eglinton-Lawrence Councillor Karen Stintz are co-hosting the meeting, which will also feature guest speaker and University of Toronto urban geography professor Andre Sorensen as well as TTC staff.
The meeting will allow residents to hear about the city’s transit future after Stintz made her opposition to Mayor Rob Ford’s subway plan known, advocating light rail plans that will provide better public transit options to more of the city.
Matlow was a strong proponent of the light rail plan.
The meeting will take place at the North Toronto Memorial Community Centre, 200 Eglinton Ave. W., from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28. For more information, call 416-392-4090 to reach Stintz’s office or 416-392-7906 for Matlow’s office.
