People in Parkdale-High Park are well-informed about their community — partly because we keep them informed. This morning, transit riders were gladly taking information about Ford’s proposed plan to split up their public transit system and take over their subway.
The TTC Riders’ information pickets across the city this morning were like deja vu for me. I used to be the research director of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents most TTC employees. Working with other unions and community groups, I was deeply involved in the fight to stop wheel-trans privatization. I’d rather have a government on my side that expands TTC!
The TTC privatizers are always at it — and so are we.
