Please Stop the Sale of the O-Trains

Dear Councillors and Mayor,

Given today's developments (see here), there is now an extremely high probability that the proposed North-South LRT project will not proceed as planned. As a result, it is now urgent to revoke Council's July 12th mandate that staff sell the O-Train's Bombardier Talent trains.

For those of you seeking reelection, I assume you will not want the record to show you were silent at this time and thus allowing, a on your watch, the premature sale of the Talents forcing 10,000+ daily riders onto the roads as of April 1, 2007.
