Ford, McGuinty expected to talk transit at first meeting Tuesday

by Kelly Grant
City Hall Bureau Chief

The fate of Transit City, a potential ban on TTC strikes and a dispute over welfare administration payments are all likely to be on the agenda when Toronto’s new mayor and Ontario’s Premier hold their first official meeting Tuesday.

Rob Ford is scheduled to speak with Dalton McGuinty at Queen’s Park at 9:30 a.m.

Mr. Ford has already vowed to deep-six a provincially funded light-rail network and redirect the money to subways. But the province, through Metrolinx, has final say on how its transit money for Toronto is spent.

Mr. Ford has said he intends to raise the issue at his first meeting with the Premier.

Tuesday will be a busy day for Mr. Ford, whose investiture ceremony beginning at 2 p.m. is expected to draw a large crowd at city hall.
