Save Transit City - email Councillor Karen Stintz, Chair of the TTC

I Posted a vesion of this on my Facebook wall. Better here, where Everyone can see it.

The text comes partly from a recent email from CodeRedTO - the new Toronto Lobby to get TransitCity back on track.(

If you like my text, COPY and paste and email it to the Chair of the TTC. No matter what Ward you live in, as Chair of the TTC, Councillor Karen Stintz is responsible to all Torontonians.

As a resident of the city of Toronto I agree with CodeRedTO who are strongly recommending that as part of a smart transit solution we "..focus on Eglinton LRT + Scarborough RT replacement, and Finch West LRT or Upgradable BRT first."

Finch is extremely important in my opinion. Public Transit is a great leveler - I think it is crucial we invest in our poorly served neighbourhoods.

We can't find the money needed for subway expansion - but right now nearly $8 Billion is waiting in Provincial coffers for City Council to say GO to a LRT solution.
