Vomiting sounds from Mayor Rob Ford over proposed fees to kickstart massive GTA-Hamilton transit expansion were drowned out Tuesday by decision-makers who said gridlock has to be conquered.
“The mayor’s been pretty consistent in his position about new taxes, but it will come to council and council will make a decision,” TTC chair Karen Stintz said after the provincial Metrolinx agency released its list of 11 potential ways to raise $2 billion a year for transportation projects.
“It’s really a discussion of whether or not the transit projects are the right transit projects, and whether or not we want to contribute to them as a region — and I think the answer is yes.”
