Toronto City Council will discuss potential road closures downtown.

Some streets could be closed for seven years or more.

Ward 6 city councillor James Pasternak told Zoomer Radio’s “Fight Back” with Libby Znaimer there will be big disruptions but building more transit like this is long overdue and there is no ideal situation with few disruptions.

“Toronto, to many, is about 30 years behind in its transit building,” Pasternak said. “Because of that delay, a lot of density and increased building occurred where you would build high level transit. So now you have narrow corridors to build transit when everything is built around it.”

Council is scheduled to vote on the closure plan next week. When completed, the Ontario Line will connect the Ontario Science Centre with the Exhibition.
