Free public transit could challenge reliance on cars 6.10.2018 - News for the rest of us
Yves Engler Free public transit could combat both economic inequality and climate disturbances. And, if paid for by fees on automobility, fare-less transit could be part of a serious challenge to private, car-centred transit and urban planning. At Toronto's first mayoral debate Saron Gebresellassi called for fare-free transit. By detailing a bold proposal the left-wing mayoral candidate  steered  the other candidates to bemoan ballooning fare costs and suggest eliminating some of them. Gebresellassi's plan also garnered significant media attention. In an article titled " Making Toronto   transit free isn't realistic now. But it's a terrific idea," Toronto Star columnist Edward Keenan offered an informative rundown of the argument. But, as is wont in the dominant media, Keenan implicitly downplays the climate crisis and the importance of ditching the private automobile. Rather than being a long-term objective, free public transit should be viewed as a short- to medium-term tool for shifting away from our ...

In D!ONNE Renée's Toronto, everyone could live and thrive 20.9.2018 - News for the rest of us
Phillip Dwight Morgan For mayoral candidate D!ONNE Renée, Toronto has yet to become a world-class city, a place where people thrive. Despite being one of the wealthiest cities in North America, Toronto still presents many barriers to people's livelihoods. Renée recounts her many friends who have visited the city from other places in the world and asked, "how do people rely on a transit system that is unreliable? There's a bus pole with a sign and a schedule but the bus doesn't come." She adds, "people come from other countries and they tell me this because their expectation of Toronto is the expectation that I have too: that transit should be coming in and meeting on time. It works in their country, why not here?" While reliable transit is not the only hallmark of a healthy city, Renée contends that Toronto's ailing transit system is indicative of the city's mismanagement of funds and its resultant failure to ensure community wellness. Using Toronto's controversial PRESTO fare gates as an example, Renée ...
