ttc subway protests toronto

People protested Doug Ford's TTC upload at subway stations across the city

City Council will vote today on the Ford government's plan to take over the TTC, and people are taking to Toronto's subway stations to protest the plan. 

For the second time in two months, protestors gathered at nearly half of the subway stations across the city to hand out leaflets to commuters during rush hour this morning. 

They didn't have their 12-foot-tall Doug Ford puppet this time, but members of the local public transit advocacy group TTCriders could be seen at nearly every busy station on the TTC. 

The #OurSubway protest was repped by dozens of local groups like Toronto Education Workers, Jane Finch Action Against Poverty, and the Toronto & York Region Labour Council, who covered 39 stations along all four lines of the subway. 

There were also a number of MPPs protesting, as well as Councillor Joe Cressy at Osgoode Station this morning with CUPE Local 79.  

Councillors and citizens alike have expressed their concern about the proposed TTC upload to the province since the provincial government first announced its plan in January.
