Policing Public Transit in Toronto
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) recently unveiled an ad campaign that uses images captured by security cameras to publicly shame those trying to avoid paying the fare. We talk to the independent journalist Benjamin Bilgen about how the campaign violates the TTC’s own video recording policy, and we get in to chatting about transit enforcement more generally.
