Duly Quoted: Mayor John Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle, on Bombardier Streetcar Delays

Toronto is used to streetcar delays, but not like this.

“The delay of new streetcars has now reached a critical tipping point. We are no longer able to sustain our current service levels as a result of Bombardier’s delay.”

—A letter co-signed by John Tory and TTC chair Josh Colle (Ward 15, Eglinton-Lawrence) calls out Bombardier for repeatedly missing deadlines to deliver Toronto’s streetcars. Bombardier was scheduled to deliver 110 new streetcars this year, but only 30 have been delivered. The letter stops short of indicating what the City will actually do about the delays, which have now dragged on for two years. You can read the letter below.
