Public Opinion Polls

2/3 of Toronto Opposes OPTO

“The findings couldn’t be clearer; Toronto residents are surprised and shocked that TTC management would make a decision with such profound safety implications for riders without consulting the public first.

Moreover, they are consistent in their opposition to the decision to eliminate the subway guards, a position they see as critical to the safe and smooth operation of the subway”

– John Corbett, principal at Corbett Communications.
