Duly Quoted: Glenn De Baeremaeker

“A Scarborough subway has to be back on the table.”

—Glenn De Baeremaeker (Ward 38, Scarborough Centre) to the Globe and Mail, in response to renewed talk about building subways instead of light rail in Toronto. That talk was sparked yesterday by the provincial Tories as well as Rob and Doug Ford, after Tim Hudak held a press conference at City Hall in which he said if elected premier he would redirect money currently earmarked for four LRT lines in Toronto and spend as much of it as possible on constructing subways instead. Council reversed precisely such a proposal, which had been advanced by the mayor, earlier this year. De Baeremaeker told the Globe that he wants to reopen that debate about the Scarborough LRT in particular next spring, when councillors will consider a long-term funding strategy for transit in Toronto.
