Mayor Eisenberger on LRT Support

Mr. Mayor:

We note that a council vote to reaffirm support for LRT is expected to come to council. After all the debate and discussion that has occurred concerning LRT, some may be left to wonder why this vote is necessary. A) Do you believe it is necessary and B) do you think it is just as much a test of leadership as it is a vote as to whether there is reaffirmed support for LRT? Please elaborate in any way you see fit.

The Mayor responded as follows: 

“I fully support Cllr. Merulla’s motion to re-affirm Council support for the billion dollar LRT investment in our community. We have in past ensured majority support to move forward with the project. There are new details presented in the first part of this year which all members of council need to be fully aware of. In order for us to achieve success with the project, it would be prudent for us to ensure the community that continued council support is firmly in place. I look forward to ongoing community engagement and dialogue with Metrolinx, Staff and Council.”
