Scarboro Ends Its Opposition To New Subway

Page 5:

With only Councillor L. Milne Freeman opposed, Scarboro Council voted at a special meeting yesterday to withdraw its opposition to the east-west subway.

The decision was made after Reeve Albert Campbell told council a survey revealed that most ratepayers were in favor of the subway.

But the council also included in the resolution a resolve to seek more equitable fares for the township from Metro and a fairer distribution of costs on future projects.

Mr. Campbell said 300 homeowners were polled for their opinions and the results showed 59 per cent were in favor of the subway, eight per cent against it and 33 per cent undecided. Fifty-four per cent were not aware that the subway would add two mills to Scarboro’s tax rate, but 56 per cent said they were prepared to accept the increase.
