Most Toronto mayoral candidates were frustrated with the prospect that Toronto’s transit plans could be derailed one again if Tim Hudak becomes the next premier.

The Progressive Conservative leader came out Friday pledging to cancel the Finch and Sheppard LRTs if he wins the provincial election.

Mayoral candidate Karen Stintz — the former TTC chairman — argued cancelling LRTs will mean transit in Toronto will “absolutely suffer.”

“I really need all provincial leaders to understand if we’re going to tackle congestion we need to commit to the funded transit plans that have been approved by council and the province,” Stintz said.

“These are not just plans, they’re responsibilities.”

Stintz, who led the fight to reopen the debate to push ahead with the Scarborough subway, said the transit plan can’t change now.
