Elect Michael Laxer - Ward 6 City Councillor 2014: Michael Laxer for City Councillor Ward 6: "2) 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."

Transport Futures: "Traffic congestion in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) has reached unacceptable levels and opinion polls consistently report that it is a top of mind issue for citizens. Building more transit and road infrastructure is the accepted way to combat gridlock but will cost the province well over $50 billion by 2031. On April 14, 2014, the Ontario government announced its Move Ontario Forward plan with the promise that quicker commute times are coming sometime in the next decade. "

Public Transit is more than simply a means to get to work in the morning. It is a necessary public service, which makes it possible for everyone to go where they want and need to go: to visit friends and relatives, shop, get to school, work and attend critical and important tasks. It is a key way of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and is a way of addressing climate change and climate justice.
