4. TCAT Municipal Candidate Election Survey – Results Coming In

The Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation has been administering a Municipal Election Survey, asking candidates about their platform points, opinions and plans about active transportation issues in Toronto.

Responses have started to trickle in and are being posted online.

Want to know how where the candidates in your ward stand on cycling and walking? Check out their responses here. Not sure which ward you live in? Check out the City’s website.

Make an informed decision in October. And if you don’t see your candidates’ survey posted yet, please remind them they have until September 10th to respond.

TCAT will post summary results as soon as all responses have been received.
