Josh Matlow will ask about proposed purchase of plaza

Councillor Josh Matlow (Ward 22) will try to stop the purchase of a small strip mall plaza on Danforth Rd. which the TTC thinks would be just perfect as the home of a power station on the $3.35 billion one-stop subway to Scarborough.  Mr. Matlow is a determined foe of this project (and he is right).  But political expediency has gathered great strength to waste money in the name of subway equitability. “I am going to be asking about whether or not it is premature, to once again be spending money on a project that has not been approved by council”, Matlow said December 5 as quoted by the Scarborough Mirror.
