Expect public transit, and finding the funding for it to dominate this month’s council meeting at City Hall.
Councillors will be tasked with deciding whether to approve a recently proposed transit deal with the province, which includes nearly $4B for a revised version of the SmartTrack plan. Six new GO stations would be built along existing lines, as well as light rail for Eglinton Avenue.
Toronto is on the hook for at least $2B for the project.
The city has until the end of November to sign off on the funding deal with the Province.
Also on the agenda, the idea of Toronto police bringing in “exchange zones” where people who buy/sell through online classifieds, can meet in person under the watchful of police, a possible city bid for Expo 2025, as well ward boundaries and the employee drug benefit plan.
