A chorus of voices chanting "save our subway" filled Nathan Phillips Square on Thursday morning as protestors called on council to fight the province's plans to takeover Toronto's subway system.

A few hours later, Mayor John Tory's executive committee gave its stamp of approval to the latest staff report recommending ongoing engagement with Premier Doug Ford's government. Tory said he won't commit to being for or against the "upload" until there's a formal proposal on the table.

"This is the beginning, not the end," the mayor told a room filled with councillors, city staff, and community members.
