Fund it already! Provincial Budget Teach-in

March 14, 2018

What's holding up the Relief Line? When will the TTC get the funding it needs to fix overcrowding and long wait times?

Come and learn what's at stake for transit riders in the upcoming provincial budget, and find out about our plans for a March 27 action.

The 2018 provincial budget will be unveiled soon, with an election around the corner. TTCriders wants the province to restore TTC operating funding and to fund projects like the Relief Line and Sheppard East LRT.

TTCriders member Mike Sullivan will take us through some of these transit issues and explain TTCriders' demands.

Mike Sullivan has worked at CBC Radio and as a Union Negotiator. He helped organize and ran the Weston Community Coalition and the Clean Train Coalition. He was a member of Parliament from 2011-2015. He is presently completing a Masters in Environmental Studies at York. He is keenly interested in transit, particularly planning community involvement.

Snacks will be provided and TTC tokens will be available.

Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: 720 Bathurst Street, 3rd floor. Toronto, ON
