TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO,
WHEREAS the TTC has owned, operated, and maintained Toronto’s public transit system since 1921; and
WHEREAS the people of Toronto have paid for the TTC at the fare box and through their property taxes; and
WHEREAS uploading the subway will mean higher fares, reduced service, and less say for transit riders; and
WHEREAS the TTC is accountable to the people of Toronto because elected Toronto City Councillors sit on its board.
WE THE UNDERSIGNED PETITION THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO AS FOLLOWS:
- Reject legislation that uploads any aspect of the TTC to the Province of Ontario, and reject the privatization or contracting out of any part of the TTC.
- Match the City of Toronto’s financial contribution to the TTC so transit riders can have improved service and affordable fares.
