  • December 10, 2010: Free Transit and Movement Building
    The demonstrations surrounding the G20 summit in Toronto unfolded more or less as scripted. The state spent obscene amounts of public money to install security cameras in Toronto's streets, build an enormous fence, and augment the capacities of the local, provincial, and national police forces, both logistically and legally.
  • December 7, 2010: Mayor Ford scraps Toronto light rail transit system
    It was supposed to be one of the largest transit expansion projects anywhere. Seven new light rail lines along the streets of Toronto's major transit corridors. Older buses replaced with modern, cost effective, environmentally friendly light-rail vehicles.
  • October 27, 2010: Drivers and Riders Unite!
    Fare hikes, layoffs, and service cuts decimate public transit - In 2008, when gas prices spiked, so did transit ridership, reaching 10.7 billion trips in the United States. Hard times make this service even more essential to millions of people.
  • October 2, 2010: NO Fare IS Fair
    Start of the campaign to win free and accessible transit for the GTA. A project of the Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly.
  • August 21, 2010: New York's transit agency lays off workers, raises fares
    The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has laid off another 200 New York City station agents, while proposing to once again increase transit fares. The layoffs took place on August 13 as a result of a recent decision by the MTA, which runs the New York City transit system, as well as the surrounding commuter railroads.
  • July 16, 2010: Free and Accessible TTC!
    Forum featuring: Deb Cowen, Karen Sun, Franz Hartmann and Kamilla Pietrzyk
