Move By Ford's Government To Take Over Toronto's Subways

The Ontario government is moving ahead with a plan to take over Toronto’s subway system, appointing a special adviser to help develop the best approach for the move.

The province says Michael Lindsay and an advisory panel of up to three experts will craft recommendations on the building and maintenance of new and existing subway lines, among other issues.

The government says Lindsay will not be paid for his role as special adviser.

Premier Doug Ford, who promised during the spring election campaign to create a regional transportation system, has said uploading Toronto’s subway system to the province would benefit the city.
