Toronto Council has added a third day to its sitting schedule July 21.

Council rose at 6pm on the evening of July 20th with dozens of agenda items still to be discussed; one of those items, GL32.29, concerns extending the allowable age of Accessible Taxi vans to ten years. Staff have recommended this extension be temporary, until 2025, mainly because the supply chain crisis has made new vehicles very difficult to obtain.

Council will resume at 9:30am this morning; Taxi News will post the live link to Council as soon as it becomes available.
