6. Sale of Existing Talent O-Trains
Vente des O-Trains Talent actuels CITY WIDE / À L'ÉCHELLE DE LA VILLE
Whereas recent actions by the minister in charge of Treasury Board have put in question when and how a new light rail system will be built to replace the exiting O-Train service;
Whereas the existing O-Train provides cost effective and reliable service to thousands of people each day in a manner which cannot be matched by buses;
Whereas it is essential to minimize the amount of time the O-Train will be out of service as we convert from the existing system to a new system;
Be it Resolved that any potential sale of the existing Talent trains and related assets be put on hold while the fate of the new LRT system is in question.
