Today, 24 City Councillors signed a petition that will allow for a special meeting of City Council this Wednesday.
At issue is my plan to expand rapid transit with the underground Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown, the Sheppard subway expansion and enhanced express bus service on Finch.
Many Councillors are looking to disband my rapid transit plan in favour of a Light Rail Vehicle network that would put more tracks on the roads, create traffic chaos and result in years of needless, messy and inconvenient construction.
Over the past number of weeks you have been updated with the facts on rapid transit. It is now time for Toronto residents to express their views on underground rapid transit.
Let your Councillor know why you support underground rapid transit by visiting http://app.toronto.ca/im/council/councillors.jsp to get your Councillor's contact information. Thank you.
Mayor Rob Ford
