September 8, 2014 – Rouge National Urban Park & P3s on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT

YORK COMMUNITY REPORT: York Alumnus Anna Baggio of the Wildlandsleague.org about the politics behind Canada’s first urban national park in Scarborough – Rouge National Urban Park. The
group signed a joint press release last week supporting the Ontario government’s decision to stall the transfer of rouge park land to federal jurisdiction. The province is claiming the environmental standards set out for the park by Conservatives do not match those of Ontario – an original stipulation of the transfer agreement.

FEATURE REPORT: We investigate the prospect of corporate ownership of the Eglinton Cross Town LRT currently under construction across Eglinton Avenue in Toronto. The province has opened the doors to applications for companies to enter what are called Public-Private-Partnerships, or P3s. Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 advisor Bill Reno talks about the potential risks and global examples of how the privatization of public transit can be disastrous for municipalities.
