While Toronto appeared to vote for change when the ballots were counted on Election Day, a closer look at the voting map afterward seemed to show that some things haven’t changed after all.
Politicians in Toronto have been talking about building better transit for decades, but progress has moved at a glacial pace. While the gridlock has meant billions in lost productivity, there are other pressing reasons for enabling more people to get around the city faster.
“It doesn’t matter what corner of the city you live in, you want to see action on those key (issues) that matters to everyone. Transportation is one of those matters,” CivicAction CEO Sevaun Palvetzian says. She points out that improved transit would help people in less advantaged areas get around to a wider range of work opportunities.
