DIGITAL RALLY TO KEEP TRANSIT MOVING
Across the country, transit agencies are on the brink of collapsing or being forced to cut service routes and jobs because of the impacts of COVID-19. Public transit isn’t just about how we can get from one place to another. It’s about accessibility and disability; bridging divides between urban, suburban and rural transportation; policing, racism and migrant justice; workers’ rights; austerity cuts and privatization of public services; public health in a time of pandemic; Indigenous rights; social injustice; and the climate crisis.
We’ll hear from grassroots organizers about these important intersections and the work that’s happening in many communities to build a just recovery and a GND for public transit, as well as how people can get involved. Speakers include:
- John Di Nino (ATU Canada)
- Zainab Hussein (TTC Riders)
- Sony Rai (Sustainable Vaughan)
- Laura Kruse (Free Transit Edmonton)
- Nick Kynoch (Guelph Transit Worker, member of ATU 1189)
Hosted by The Council of Canadians.
