Public Transit Privatization

Public Privatization

Transit Advocacy Movement

A set of illustrations that were used in a public protest of a Metrolinx Board meting. They are shining light on the fact that Metrolinx is spending vast quantities of taxpayers’ dollars without any oversight or accountability: in fact, even the quarterly board meetings are completely opaque, with no public input allowed and with all financial matters discussed behind closed doors. The recent approval by Metrolinx of the Kirby and Lawrence East SmartTrack/GO stations at the transportation minister’s bidding despite the lack of an evidence base was their impetus to cry out against Metrolinx’s opaque practices.
