Province Considers Toronto’s Transit Choice

By Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Transportation

(TORONTO, ON) – A majority of Toronto City Council voted today to build light rail transit along Sheppard Avenue East.

Last year, the Province signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mayor Rob Ford to build a subway along Sheppard, on the condition that the plan be approved by council.

This government respects the will of the city’s democratically elected councillors and they sent a message today to the Province and to Metrolinx that light rail transit is their preference.

The Finch West LRT, Eglinton Crosstown and Scarborough RT upgrade received an overwhelming endorsement by Council in February. Today, council finalized their proposal for Sheppard Avenue East.

Metrolinx will now review that plan and then Cabinet will have the opportunity to further consider all advice.
