CouncilWatch - Your Letters, Saving Transit Expansion and Happy Holidays from TEA!

December 21, 2010 

TEA delivers 2000 letters to Councillors asking for a green Toronto

Last Tuesday, Santa Claus [photos] helped us deliver almost 2000 letters to City Hall as part of our "Help us Keep Council Green" campaign. These letters ask that the newly elected Councillors keep the environmental commitments they made during the election, work to ensure the environment is a priority over the next term of council and to fight to save the Transit City Light Rail plan.

Over the next four years, we will be working hard to keep the environment on the agenda and to be your environmental watch dog at City Hall.

Check out our media release - "Santa Makes Special Delivery to Toronto Councillors", media coverage and photos from the event.


Help save Transit City: our modern, rapid light rail transit plan

We ask that you take a moment out of your day to send an email to the Mayor and Councillors, telling them that you believe all Torontonians have the right to fast, accessible transit, now.

Mayor Ford has made it clear that he does not support the Transit City plan.  He favours a plan that seeks to extend a subway line linking Shepard Station to Scarborough Town Centre.  This new plan dramatically reduces the amount of new transit in the city, will halt construction work already underway, squanders hundreds of millions of dollars and disadvantages hundreds of thousands of Torontonians. 

Please send a quick email to Mayor Ford and Councillors. It is extremely important to let our elected leaders know that the people of Toronto want and deserve accessible transit.  As well, if transit is one of your priorities, we urge you to join TTCriders today.

Happy holidays from your friends at TEA!

For over 21 years, TEA has been campaigning locally to find solutions to Toronto's urban environmental problems.  This holiday season, consider making a small donation to TEA to ensure that we can continue to do this important work and can continue to be your environmental watchdog at City Hall. 

We at TEA want to wish all our friends out there a safe and happy holiday season, and a green and prosperous 2011!
