On February 27, Transport Action Ontario representatives made a presentation to Toronto City Council’s Planning and Growth Management (P&GM) Committee concerning our July, 2013 report on “GTHA Regional Rapid Rail: A Vision for the Future.” This was in response to a request made by the Chair, Councillor Peter Milczyn.
Since its release, Transport Action has discussed the report with dozens of elected officials at the municipal, provincial and federal level across the entire Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, as well as to municipal transit and planning agencies. The response has typically been very positive. In late November, 2013, Toronto City Council voted overwhelmingly to direct planning staff to consider the report’s findings in the Official Plan review.
