An article by Olivia Chow in the May 26, 2014 National Post is entitled: “I’ll get Toronto moving, now.”
You can access the article here.
The following message is from Olivia Chow, whose candidacy I support, as noted in an earlier editorial at this website.
The following text is written by Olivia Chow:
I can’t go anywhere in our city without someone talking to me about transit.
People like Selina, whom I met on the TTC when I was on my way to announce a policy for pedestrian safety. Selina told me she’s a big supporter of my plan for better bus service.
Because she spends four hours a day getting to and from work—on two trains, two buses and one streetcar.
There are 1.6 million people like her every day, riding the TTC. So we need a transit plan that improves service today, while fixing it and building it for tomorrow.
That’s what my plan does with clear short-, medium- and long-term priorities—from better bus service now, to a subway relief line in the future. You can see it at oliviachow.ca/transit
After almost three months of saying nothing specific on transit, John Tory says he’s releasing proposals tomorrow. So today, I have an article in the National Post about the criteria we should use to evaluate Mr. Tory’s plan, as you can also see below.
Our city has a mayor who doesn’t like or understand public transit. We can’t afford another. That’s why I will be paying very close attention to what Mr. Tory has to say, and evaluating his ideas based on these six tests.
Thanks for your interest in our city,
