Doug Ford is trying to 'steal' the TTC's subways, public transit activists charge - 2018-11-29
Opponents of the provincial government's plan to take over some elements of Toronto's subway network protested on Thursday, alleging that Ontario Premier Doug Ford is trying to "steal" the TTC's "most valuable assets."
About a dozen members of the group TTCriders rallied at Queen's Park station on Line 1 and handed out literature to morning commuters. The organization, which has ties to various unions and says it advocates on behalf of public transit riders, has been a vocal critic of the Progressive Conservative government.
The protest was part of a "transit day of action to stop Doug Ford's TTC takeover," the group said in a statement. The NDP's transportation critic, MPP Jessica Bell, also attended.
