  • CivicAction's Your32 regional transportation campaign Play all

    The transportation system in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) isn't working, and we can't accept it any more. It can be so much better.

    CivicAction's Your32 campaign is about building public support for a better regional transportation system and the need for new sustainable ways to pay for it - to give our political leaders the evidence they need to act.

    In Phase 1 residents of the region told CivicAction and our 45-member Regional Transportation Champions Council how they would benefit from a better system by answering the question "What would you do with 32?". Now Phase 2 will give you a way to say what you are ready to do for that better system - and to invite your politicians to join you.

    With the launch of "I Pledge to Get a Move on", we are calling on civic leaders, residents, and elected officials at the municipal, regional, provincial, and federal levels within the GTHA to join us in pledging to be part of the solution to our regional transportation crisis.

    Your pledge is critical to demonstrate a wide cross-section of support for new ways to raise funding under the terms that are important to us.

    Please join us by making this pledge at your32.com -- together our voice is stronger and demonstrates regional support for immediate action in combating congestion and getting a move on.
