One of my missions has always been ‘putting Scarborough back on the Toronto Map.’ I am very happy to see that a Scarborough Subway, and more specifically, the Sheppard Extension is back on the Transit Map!
During his announcement the Premier said, "I remember distinctly, Cynthia was out there fighting for the people of Scarborough, for the subway; and Cynthia, the dream has come true now!"
I will continue to work hard to ensure this project stays on track, excuse the pun, and I will keep you informed.
The province has committed to delivering the residents of Scarborough the subway services they have been denied for so long. As you may know, the Sheppard Subway Extension line has not been a part of an official transit plan for some time, as such the Province will begin exploratory work on cost and on completion timelines to lock in the project for a future build date. I will continue to relentlessly fight for better transit for Scarborough and Ward 23!
