Commuter Organizes Rally to Protest TTC Cutbacks


What: a citizen rally
Why: to protest TTC service cutbacks and fare increases
When: Saturday, July 28th, 1:00 p.m.
Where: Nathan Phillips Square

A regular TTC rider, Vanessa Delsooz is fed up with the way the city and the TTC has been treating transit riders, and the news of the proposed drastic service cutbacks is the last straw. So she is organizing a guerilla citizen rally next Saturday, July 28th outside the City Hall (the exact time hasn't been settled yet, apparently). Several environmental organizations have been notified, but the rally is not associated with any of them. The rally has no permit since the bureaucratic procedure for obtaining one would take far too long to deliver an immediate response to the shocking news.

Alas, there is no way a rally can generate any revenue for the cash-strapped city, but at least it would show the politicians that Torontonians are damn pissed off. And while it's not clear what exactly should be done, it's abundantly clear that something should be done instead of just slashing services and hiking fares. So if you are pissed of - show up and let them know that you are!
