Spring Public Meetings Roundup

In April and May CodeRedTO held a series of public meetings in Etobicoke (Jane and Finch, and Richview Gardens), Scarborough (Malvern), Leaside (Thorncliffe Park) and East York (Danforth and Coxwell) to share detailed information with the public on transit expansion projects happening in and near their communities. Metrolinx also presented information about future transit funding and their research into how other regions around North America and the world have paid for major transit expansion.

Invited were all Toronto city councillors, and all nearby provincial MPPs and federal MPs, and turnout was most impressive! Some councillors chose to not respond to our invitations to events in their wards but we extend our sincere thanks to the following elected representatives for attending:

  • Councillor Mary Fragedakis, ward 29
  • Councillor Paula Fletcher, ward 30
  • Councillor Janet Davis, ward 31
  • Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, ward 32
  • Councillor Maria Augimeri, ward 9
  • Councillor Chin Lee,  ward 41
  • MPP Peter Tabuns, Toronto – Danforth
  • MPP Michael Prue, Beaches – East York

CodeRedTO extends an open invitation to any community organization or elected representative who would like more information on transit presented at their event to contact us at any time. We have presented for MPs, MPPs, city councillors, and the University of Toronto, and we only use information from official sources and checked by transit agency officials.

Some great questions were raised during our presentations, and we will share detailed answers soon. If you have any questions on transit expansion or funding, email info@coderedTO.com and we will get answers from the experts.

How to Help

JOIN our email list to stay informed!

LEARN about Transit and why there's room for subways, light rail, and streetcars throughout our region. Combining different modes can often be a great city-building choice for the medium-density and lower-density neighbourhoods in Etobicoke, Scarborough, North York, Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton, and Kitchener-Waterloo.

CALL your City Councillor, and tell them that you want rational, affordable, and rapid transit in Toronto to benefit everyone, not just one small section of the city. Rapid transit to Malvern, Morningside, and Waterfront East are achievable if we learn from successful transit networks around the world.

TELL your friends and family that new rapid transit is amazing - it really is! - but unless we stabilize and grow operations funding we risk leaving people waiting for crowded buses for decades longer.

Did you know: The bus routes on Finch carry as many riders per day as the population of North Bay! Routes on Lawrence, Jane, and elsewhere also carry a huge number of riders per day. We are decades behind and need more and better transit options for our residents now, not just small extensions that use up all the budget.
