Tuesday, January 11, 2011
When announcing the proposed 2011 Budget for Toronto, Mayor Rob Ford painfully acknowledged that the TTC would be raising its fares by 10-cents in order to fulfill its bugdetary requirements, but Ford promised to do everything he could to stop the hike.
Leftist rags like the Toronto Star crucified Ford, saying that he had removed a burden from Toronto Motorists and put that burden on the TTC ridership, essentially declaring a war on transit (SOURCE: Budget: Drivers’ gain is riders’ loss), not to mention completely dismissing his claims that he was absolutely against the fare hike.
Well, after 1 day, Rob Ford announced today that the proposed 10-cent TTC Fare Hike has been scrapped, as the City found the money it needed to avoid it.
Wow, what a difference between Super Mayor Rob Ford and Useless former Mayor David Miller. It truly is refreshing to have a Mayor who actually cares about the Toronto taxpayers and who actually gets results.
