Public Transit Department: " A Small-Sized Riot Nipped in the Bud"

Toronto Star, October 25, 1918.

I wonder how much this situation may have been exacerbated by the Toronto Railway Company's overall poor public PR image. Other newspaper stories around this time hinted at the eventual public ownership of all of the city's streetcar lines after the TRC's franchise expired in 1921. 

Speaking of public transit overcrowding, check out John Lorinc's Spacing piece on the possibility that years of not properly managing the subway system's passenger capacity will have fatal consequences.
