Jeffrey signals opposition to Vision 2040 transit plan; another showdown on LRT route if re-elected
Incumbent mayor Linda Jeffrey, late in her campaign for re-election, has just released a transit plan for Brampton. It signals that she will again make the Main Street LRT route a key transit priority.
The current council term became mired in dysfunction when Jeffrey tried and failed to get the Main Street option pushed through shortly after her election.
Her new set of transit pledges also appear to include a rejection of the plan put forward, and approved unanimously by council, under the comprehensive Vision 2040 document, which outlines how the city should manage its future growth. Jeffrey's new platform could be a sign that, if re-elected, she would scrap much of the transit planning already underway.
