In the context of the Governance Review which the new Council will consider on December 5, FCA-FAC has written to request the terms of reference for the Transit Commission be changed to permit Councillors to review (and be held accountable for) major operational issues. Currently Council votes only on the OC Transpo budget, fare structure and labour negotiation mandate.
