ATU 113’s actions on Friday night was irresponsible. To go on strike with only 1 hour’s notice is despicable.

All we need is to have privately run Mini Bus companies to complete with TTC.

100% agree with 廢苦滋燃. Putting van 仔 on the roads like HK will certainly soften the impact of these lazy, greedy, irresponsible TTC workers going on strike again. Also, declaring TTC as an essential service not only will slap a hefty fine and jail terms on these people walking off the job again, taxpapers will never have to pay a dime of ransom again when these thugs decide to hold us hostage in the future for a nickel of raise they demand from our pockets, just like this time.
Better service at a lower cost can be achieved by following the transit models from Europe where, in cities such as London, England, bus routes have been contracted out, service expanded and costs kept under control. London went down that route in the mid-1980s and other cities in Europe followed suit. It’s time Toronto did the same.

Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile! ACU 133 is forever greedy.

Sleepless husband bills striking workers

• Fares will always increase,
• Service will always be cut.
• Commuters will always suffer.
This is the so-called world-class mass transit system we have in Toronto.

How about the subway. Who can take it over? Our subway system is out of date. The Hong Kong MTR is super .

End the TTC’s public transit monopoly
Kevin Gaudet (Ontario Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation)
In 2003, when Mayor David Miller was elected, the city budget stood at $6.4-billion. After four years, he has ratcheted spending up to $8.2-billion — a 28% increase. Not surprisingly, much of this increase is a result of overly-generous labour contracts. Dozens of unions contributed to the mayor’s election campaign. They correctly thought they were helping elect a friend and ally. Labour settlements to date prove they were right.
