Toronto’s city council made a historic decision to finally move forward with building transit for Toronto and to truly connect our city. I want to extend my deepest appreciation to each of you who have supported this honest, evidence-based and fiscally responsible plan.
Next steps must start now
Now that underground and at-grade LRT projects are approved for Eglinton, Finch and Sheppard, I look forward to beginning substantive work to see transit projects including a Downtown Relief Subway line, improvements to current overcrowding on the Yonge line, dealing with state of good repair shortfalls and extending the Eglinton Crosstown line to Pearson Airport with a realistic plan and viable funding sources through to fruition. This hard work must start now.
