Citizen with easy subway access seeks to raise Transit City from the dead
An online petition calling for the revival of Transit City has attracted around 1,800 signatures so far, thanks to a Torontonian who lives close to the Bloor-Danforth subway line. Trish O’Reilly-Brennan says she was inspired to start the petition after hearing David Miller’s suggestion that the system could still be built and watching Rob Ford get schooled compromise on the Waterfront. InsideToronto points out that some Scarborough folks might resent O’Reilly-Brennan for advocating in favour of light-rail transit instead of the Sheppard subway station. Indeed, this would appear controversial if the Sheppard subway were roaring toward completion—but it’s not. Read the entire story [Inside Toronto] »

this is dumb, the opposite petition can be made and would hold the same legitimacy — he was voted by the people who chose to vote that day, a sample of 10000 people doesn’t mean anything.
AE, he was not voted in to stop Transit City. In retrospect, those who voted for him are not pleased as we can see from the steep drop in support Ford has received. His stupid, arrogant and very expensive move to destroy the well-planned Transit City for his poorly thought out plan appears to be dead. Time to get Transit City back on track. By all means, start the counter petition and find out how little support Ford’s silly plan has.
Counter petition might look something like this:
“We the residents of Toronto support a vague, impractial transit ‘vision’ that has seen no progress in over a year and promises to cost the city millions of dollars in penalities. Please continue to push for this drastically scaled-down plan to build only two new routes utilizing the most expensive methods possible.”
So the good people of North York and Scarborough whom have to commute over an hour to get to their subway stop should be taking the advice of someone whom lives on the Bloor-Danforth subway line to dash our hopes of having the same ease of travel via petitioning to cancel the Ford Sheppard subway, why? Has everyone in this City lost their cotton-picking minds!?!
No, no fresh start.
Only the SOB’s (South of Bloors) can tell the rest of the city what they can or can’t have.
It’s too bad Trish couldn’t be bothered reading the Spacing Toronto website where Miller said it was a “neighbourhood regeneration project” and NOT a rapid transit policy.
Ford will finish Sheppard and it will be a massive success the day it opens.
