"Save Transit City" campaign picking up steam online
Mayor David Miller is trying to rally opposition to Dalton McGuinty's decision to delay $4 billion worth of transit funding. In a recent editorial board with the Star, Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan praised Miller's passion but said, in so many words, he is wasting his breath.
But there is a buzz online that seems to be bigger than the community of self-described city nerds. When Miller filed a twitpic of his "Save Transit City" button, many on Twitter and Facebook asked where they could get theirs. (Given the transit link, it's tempting to reference another button, but we'll refrain.)
There are 463 members of the Facebook "Save Transit City" page, but it's growing quickly.
Do you think it will work? What would it take?
