The Toronto Star August 31, 2018
The Progressive Conservative provincial government is moving ahead with its controversial plan to take over Toronto’s subway system. In a statement released Friday, Minister of Transportation John Yakabuski announced the appointment of a special adviser who will make recommendations on how best to upload the city-owned rail network to the province.
Lindsay will chair a panel of up to three appointed experts that will “support the government in determining the best approach to the upload,” according to the release. The government gave no timeline for when the panel will make its recommendations.
