Tory's subway to success
Mayor John Tory and the Scarborough subway are riding high with Toronto voters, a new Campaign Research poll concludes.
Despite his well-publicized squabble with Premier Kathleen Wynne over tolls and transit funding, Tory’s support of the Scarborough subway and his willingness to work with the region on transit development are well received by the public, Yufest said.
When it comes to the controversial Scarborough subway extension, 60% of Torontonians are supportive, 20% disapprove and 21% have no opinion, Campaign Research found.
Tory’s support is found largely among older residents, the least wealthy and provincial Liberal supporters.
The online poll of 458 residents — conducted on May 9-13 — has a margin of error of 5%, 19 times out of 20.
