Lack of secure funding hampers TTC expansion

TTC riders made their voices heard at a public symposium on public transit on Tuesday. Former Toronto mayoral candidate, Sarah Thomson, is the chair of Toronto Transit Alliance, a group pushing for a one per cent sales tax to provide stable transit funding. Andy Byford, TTC CEO, also attended the event to meet transit users and listen to their concerns.

TTC chief general manager ‘shut down’ and ‘tossed out’

Gary Webster disagreed with the mayor and now he’s out of a job because of it, Councillor Janet Davis says. The Toronto Transit Commission today voted 5-4 to terminate Webster — its chief general manager and a 36-year veteran of the TTC — because, she said, he would not side with Mayor Rob Ford on his transit plan.
