TTC public shaming campaign against freeloaders fails — by keeping their identities private

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Toronto Transit Commission is justifiably fed up with people who hop aboard a subway train without paying the piper. So, the TTC has decided to publicly shame the freeloaders. Kind of. Not really.

Fare evasion cost the TTC $61 million last year alone, so the Commission has been taking photos of fare-evaders to post online in a public shaming campaign.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to recognize anyone in the photos.

Is anything in Toronto useful?

Just like the young offenders act, keep every creep protected. The act was suppose to keep little crappy from having a record for stealing a chocolate bar.
Instead the real creeps use the under eighteens for their dirty work. The allure being you wont do any time. No one will know who you are. The what, where, why and when and of course what community you are from.

I’m one of those complete idiots who actually pays my fare every time I get on public transit. I also believe in “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay”. Hopeless, I know.

Must be careful not to upset Trudeau’s freeloading migrants, they might throw a stabbing fit and mess up the nice shiny busses.

Thanks for the expose’ Mr. Menzies. Nothing so humble or obscure that it will evade the watchful eye of those rebels of the Rebel.
