February 8: City Council Supports Revised Transit Expansion Plan

In an unprecedented move, a majority of City Councillors request a special meeting to discuss a revised provincially funded LRT Plan that would bring fast, reliable light rail to Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough, effectively killing the Mayor’s subway plan. The special Council meeting starts with TEA hand delivering 24,000 letters and petitions. Council sends a clear signal to the Province that City Hall supports the LRT plan and wants the province to proceed.
