Critics slam reports of Doug Ford's changes to Toronto relief line plan - 2019-07-23
Critics are slamming Premier Doug Ford's transit plan, after reports that his government's new vision for a downtown relief line could be significantly different from the line the city already approved.
Reports from the Toronto Star reveal the province's vision for a subway relief line — dubbed the Ontario Line — would follow less than three kilometres of the city's proposed 7.4-kilometre path, among other changes.
"It's a mess," said Brad Bradford, TTC board member and city councillor for Beaches-East York. He said the province's vision will "throw out" years of work and money and essentially create a different plan.
