Statement by Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath on subway shut-down : Invest in state of good repair

Toronto -  Following this morning’s complete shut-down of the TTC’s subway system due to a failure of its communications system, Andrea Horwath, Leader of Ontario’s New Democrats, issued the following statement:

“An incident like this morning’s TTC subway shut-down puts a huge amount of stress on families as they try to get to work or school. It also has an impact on businesses across the city who lose productivity. While today's events further underline the need for the Liberal  government to actually live up to their transit promises, it’s clear that we should also be investing in the state of good repair of our existing infrastructure across the province. 

I would also like to thank the staff at the TTC for handling this morning’s situation in a professional manner during what was a stressful morning for everyone involved.”
