Mayor John Tory recently took to Twitter to proclaim March 6 ‘City of Toronto Day.’ In that spirit, we’ve put together a list of eight significant changes that have occurred in the city in the last 19 years.
TTC chair Karen Stintz extended an olive branch to Mayor Rob Ford in Toronto’s transit battle at city hall earlier today. Ahead of today’s special meeting, Stintz and 23 other councillors had lined up to counter the mayor’s underground transit plans in favour of building more light rail above ground with the money already set aside.
Denis Lanoue has no time for Toronto’s expansion of light rail transit. “It (is) basically a streetcar that would stop at every bus stop and wouldn’t go that fast at all,” Lanoue said.
