Doug Ford wants the province to take over Toronto's subway. “To think that, really, a higher order of government basically rips off an asset from us, that’s scandalous to me,” said Toronto City Councillor and long-time TTC board member Joe Mihevc. https://t.co/OhpKp63x0H https://t.co/nVJdippcFu keeptransitpub photo

Takeover the TTC subway and build more subways, even if they aren't needed. That is Doug Ford's transit plan.

"Pickering is currently served by GO, with a station that handles about 4,300 passengers on a typical weekday. Transportation planners say a subway is not needed unless there is passenger demand of at least 15,000 an hour.
