Key Issues

Streetcar controversy:The construction of the St. Clair West dedicated streetcar line, with its many delays and work stoppages, continues to be an issue for many people. Storeowners, residents, and Coun. Cesar Palacio were opposed to its construction owing to fears of traffic congestion and loss of business. Though the TTC says it recognized the mistakes it made, many have concerns about the proposed construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT line, expected to be completed by 2020.

Diesel opposition: Residents in Ward 17 say they are opposing the plans by Metrolinx--the regional transit agency formerly known as the Greater Toronto Transit Authority--to add more diesel trains to its Georgetown line. Community groups are against the proposal, saying emissions from the diesel trains would hurt the health of thousands of people who live in the area around the tracks. The tracks run through parts of Parkdale, the Junction and north past Weston Road toward Brampton
