Lemon: More Facts for Miller to Ignore - Tory Needs to Step In

The Star: ..."the number of cars leaving Toronto's core in the morning rush hour has grown 38 per cent since 1985 while the amount of inbound traffic is virtually unchanged."

Meanwhile, Miller is committed to building dedicated streetcar row's along the city's main thoroughfares, and has never attended a Greater Toronto Transportation Authority meeting.

McGuinty has pledged to spend several gazillion dollars over the next 1000 years or so to boost transit in the GTA.

I got a better idea... (is the PC campaign team reading?)
The Province should step in and take ownership and management of all the GTA transit systems and merge same with GO. A GTA wide transportation study should be undertaken and executed that integrates transit, roads and cycling.

The Milleristas of course will scream bloody murder at losing ownership of this powerful service, but they have proven incompetent in it's management.

The other benefit is that the City of Toronto taxpayers will no longer be on the hook for covering the deficit incurred by the system. Also, one transit agency means 4 fewer transit CEOs and 4 fewer senior management teams.
