It’ll be a fight on the council floor Wednesday for the councillors who are still undecided on the Gardiner Expressway issue. A day before council begins debating the future of the east end of the elevated expressway, many of the undecided councillors were remaining firmly undecided.

All eyes will be on Toronto City Hall on Wednesday as the long awaited debate begins in council about whether to tear down or rebuild the eastern part of the aging Gardiner Expressway.
Tomorrow, the City of Toronto will decide which vision of the eastern gardiner will prevail. Unlike other decisions, the future of every resident across the GTHA will be affected by this vote. Liuna (Labourers International Union of North America) and its 70,000 members across the GTHA urge council not to rush to a decision but rather consider all options.
We are been asked to make a decision which will impact the citizens of the City of Toronto for the next century.
All opinions with respect to the Gardiner Expressway have their merit and there is indeed an impassioned debate.
