Toronto Mayor Chow Backs New TTC Safety Plan
The Toronto Transit Commission will go over a new transit safety plan next week.
The plan, if approved, would involve hiring 178 new frontline staff; 130 agents at transit stations along with an additional 30 field supervisors.
The goal is to help with security while also improving response times.
The move comes after a spate of violent attacks, several of which involved random strangers, last winter.
The plan has the backing of Toronto mayor Olivia Chow.
