Toronto candidate calls for #freetransit

Elect Michael Laxer - Ward 6 City Councillor 2014: Transit: "As Ward 6 City Councillor I will fight to see the Waterfront West LRT plan brought back to connect our Ward with Toronto's downtown in a faster and easier direct route. I will work to see transit expanded city wide and to have revenue tools put in place to finance and maintain this expansion. I will work to integrate GO Transit and TTC routes within the city so that people can use the Lakeshore line as if it was a subway.   I will also fight against any agenda to raise fares and will work towards FREE transit, which should be the environmental and social goal of any government. If Tallinn (the capital of Estonia) and other cities in the world can have FREE or basically free transit, so can Toronto. "
