Jim Karygiannis, the new councillor for Scarborough-Agincourt Ward 39, had what to outsiders might seem a novel reaction to word that a major infrastructure improvement touching his ward was to be postponed, possibly indefinitely. He was, to use his own words, “ecstatic.”
TORONTO – Leaving the Sheppard LRT in limbo until at least 2021 sets the stage for another transit fight.
Councillor Jim Karygiannis said Tuesday that he’s “ecstatic” that construction of the LRT is being delayed until the Finch LRT is finished by 2021. He vowed to mobilize Scarborough residents to urge City Hall and Queen’s Park to finish the Sheppard subway instead of building the light-rail line.
Enbridge is laying a gas line in our area.
Work has been progressing north of McNicoll Avenue.
There is an opportunity to get an update on the work that has been done and to join the Enbridge group and me at the GTA Project Community BBQ on May 2, 2015.
The Enbridge Project Team will be there to answer any questions you have about the project or upcoming construction that will commence in May.
The Enbridge Community Events Team will be there cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. Some of the construction equipment will be onsite as well for kids to see and perhaps explore under supervision.
The event is being held:
Saturday, May 2, 2015
11:00am to 3:00pm
Bridlewood Mall Parking Lot
(Northwest corner of Warden Avenue and Finch Avenue East)
The Sheppard East light rail line might be on the back burner, but the shift in provincial transit priorities could bring another old transit debate to the foreground: namely, the old Sheppard subway.
