Peter Kuitenbrouwer: Beware Dalton McGuinty’s TTC Trojan horse “Toronto taxpayers can’t afford the transit system now, and ‘it just got a whole lot more expensive,” Councillor Shelley Carroll said. “We have an operating budget that we can scarcely afford today paid for by fare box and property taxes, and the province is refusing to help us with operating. We can’t afford to operate the existing system on day-to-day basis. We’re just playing short-term political games.”
Editor’s note: Meant to post this photo yesterday and it’s too lovely not to give it some attention.
