Peter Bethlenfalvy just became the newest Finance Minister of Ontario. Given his comments on the fiscal profligacy of the previous Liberal government and his hawkishness on spending, I fear we’re in for incredibly bad news on the TTC operational support front, and on the future of Toronto’s transit priority projects (the Ontario Line, the Scarborough Subway Extension, the Eglinton West Extension and the Yonge North Extension).
I truly hope I’m wrong. Truly. Otherwise we’re staring into another TTC death spiral.

I sense an undercurrent of concern from Mayor John Tory :/
