Meena Chopra’s Book Launch & Art Exhibition @TAGTV Special Report …


Proud to support the community of Mississauga


Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti supports Premier Doug Ford’s proposal to upload TTC subway lines

  "I applaud Premier Ford for consulting with municipalities and for committing to build the Yonge Subway Extension," says Markham Mayor Scarpitti. "I support the uploading proposal if it means we will finally get shovels in the ground for this critical transit project."


Mayor Scarpitti conveyed his support during a meeting with Monte McNaughton, Minister of Infrastructure at Queen's Park today.


"My support comes with conditions," says Mayor Scarpitti, Chair of the York Region Transit Corporation. "Delays caused by never-ending jurisdictional issues must stop, we have to set aside any political boundaries and work together using evidence-based planning. I have supported other transit investments in the GTA, including the Relief Line. If uploading means we will advance the Yonge Subway Extension then I will continue to beat the drums and advocate for funding. It's time to stop talking and start building."


According to a Metrolinx Report, titled 'Relief Line and Yonge Subway Extension (2017)', both the Downtown Relief Line and the Yonge Subway Extension are priority projects. Both are needed to meet GTHA's growth to 2031, the Yonge Subway Extension would generate more access, while the Relief Line would create more capacity.


"To say the Yonge Subway Extension will cause overcrowding is like saying we don't need to build or widen roads to deal with growth and congestion. New transit improvements such as Automatic Train Control and increased train service, Regional Express Rail and SmartTrack, will all create additional capacity and reduce overcrowding." – Mayor Scarpitti.


Premier Ford has committed to creating a regional transportation system and proposed to upload the responsibility for building and maintaining new and existing subway lines to the province, while the Toronto Transit Commission would continue to operate the subway system.


Key Facts:


-       The five-stop extension to Highway 7 will virtually eliminate 2500 daily bus trips along the busy Yonge Street Corridor

-       York Region is Canada's fastest growing large municipality and is home to nearly 1.2 million people; expected to reach 1.8 million by 2041.

-       With more than 50,000 businesses and 600,000 jobs, York Region is the second largest employment zone in Ontario.

-       More than 150,000 people commute to work in York Region every day
