Increased Toronto Police presence on TTC a “Band-Aid solution”: Premier Doug Ford
By The Canadian Parvasi
Toronto Police on Thursday announced that it will be increasing the presence of its police officers across the Toronto Transit network amid the growing number of recent reports of violence on the TTC.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford, however, opined that the measure was a “Band-Aid solution”, stating that the city needs to hire more full-time officers.
“We need full-time police officers because right now, we’re really relying on the existing police officers to come in and sign up for the callbacks…It’s not a full team there, that’s what we need,” stated Premier Ford on Friday.
