Toronto - Toronto's City Council is meeting today for a special session to debate the future of the city's transit system.The meeting was called for by TTC chair Karen Stintz earlier in the week.
Today's meeting is dealing with a review of Sheppard Avenue. Under the plan that Mayor Rob Ford is supporting the construction of a subway on Sheppard Avenue would use private funds. There is a problem with this plan, since there is no funding available for it.
Twenty-four councillors backed the Stintz move to return to the previous plan that would have more of the city's transit run above ground, as per the previous administration's Transit City plan which was approved in 2009.
As city councillors presented petition after petition to the city clerk from residents in favor of Stintz's proposal today's meeting began.
Mayor Ford's allies quickly came to the defense of the plan with several questions going to Metrolinx officials about the Eglinton and other lines.
Councillor Adam Vaughan brought up the point that the plan that Ford has on the table has no financial backing.
The final vote is scheduled to take place during the afternoon portion of the session.
