When: Saturday, December 4, 2-4PM
Where: Northwest corner, Yonge & Eglinton
What: Canvassing the Yonge & Eglinton community in Ward 16 to organize supporters of Transit City and inform people of what’s at stake
Who: All supporters of great public transportation! Children are welcome and whether you like to speak to strangers or not, there’s a role for you.
With news that the Ford Administration will ask for Transit City progress to be halted as one of its first orders of business, a group of Torontonians is building support for the rapid transit plan, beginning with a canvas on Saturday afternoon. The group’s first canvas is planned for the ward represented by Ford’s nominee for TTC chair, Councillor Karen Stintz. Stintz had campaigned for re-election earlier this fall as a staunch supporter of Transit City in part because it would bring an underground LRT to the portion of Eglinton Ave. that she represents.
For the many who have blogged, Tweeted, Facebooked and commented their frustration with Ford’s plan to cut this vital infrastructure, this is your opportunity to get involved.
