May 28, 2015 – TTC BUS GARAGE KENNEDY & MCNICOLL UPDATE
The TTC is proposing to build a transit garage, to maintain over 200 buses, at the northeast corner of Kennedy Road and McNicoll Avenue, adjacent to the Mon Sheong Seniors Home.
This will introduce hundreds of buses on our streets and add more unwanted pollution in our area. It will exacerbate existing traffic congestion which will create gridlock in this busy, vibrant neighbourhood – which contains two seniors’ residences; a condominium; a high school, with a student population of more than 1,000 students; and, a very busy community centre.
The project is now being considered at the provincial level by the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change. Attached are the latest information from the TTC Environmental Project Report (click here to view) and the letter from Dr. David McKeown, the City of Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health.

This project was agreed to and all of the work was done by my predecessor. I urge you to contact your MPP, Soo Wong at 416-297-6568 and request that the project be stopped.
I cannot support this proposal, in its present form, for these and other reasons.
