Public Transit should be sustainable, not subsidized

Instead of advocating for sustainability in public transit, the Liberal Government is arguing for more subsidizes paid for with your tax dollars. Sign this petition if you agree that tax hikes on hard-working families don't make for a sustainable transit system. 


A Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario – Public Transit should be sustainable, not subsidized

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

Whereas, the Premier of Ontario is considering increasing taxes by $477 per family;

And Whereas, this increase on everyone in Ontario is to pay for transit in the GTA;

And Whereas, the people of Ontario are already paying too much in taxes to a government that squanders our money;

And Whereas, public transit ought to be sustainable by users and not subsidized by taxpayers;

We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:

That there be no new taxes until we start getting what we already pay for.

GOAL: 500 signatures

    The Liberal government has not been in turn with the taxpayers for too many years. We can’t afford any more tax hikes and need to think about cutting rather than spending, it’s all due to poor management that we’re in this situation.They haven’t a clue what hydro costs with time of use and how it affects lifestyles. New mothers are at home with laundry and other house chores to do, when, after 7:00 and it’s the same for seniors twiddling their thumbs all day. Let them cut their expenses and salaries if they need money for transit, we’ll see how quickly they’ll quit spending if it affects their pocket and not mine.

    We the Ontqrio Taxpayer are being raped by the introduction of the WINDMILLS that contribute nothing to the HYDRO GRID. Paying an exorbitant to buy electricity from these companies is outdrageous and must be “SCRAPPED” immediately. The bill from Queens Park, (Dalton McGuinty) (Kathleen Wynne) must reverse this dishonest bill. The above did not know the outcome, really they did not give a damn.

    McGuinty and Wynne should be prosecuted and jailed for such an affront on the freedom of the Canadian (Ontario) citizen.

    People who use it should pay for it. Why do people from the north who never been to toronto have to help pay. it would be nice if they would make transit better for the people coming from north of the city. The times dont work for trades people.
