Free Masks

Price:
Free
Retailer:
TTC
Just hopped onto the University subway line at Lawrence West station. TTC employees are handing out free boxes of masks. No idea where else this is happening.

Yup.
The guy wearing a TTC jacket handed the box to me right when I entered Lawrence West station. Did not hear what he said as I was wearing headphones, lol.

The TTC is so generous. Buying in bulk should have costed them probably less than CA$5 per 50-count box [IIRC, peeps said that was its price pre-pandemic].

Please don't take the entire box. If you're riding public transit and you don't have one yourself (you should), take one.

Good deals =/= taking advantage of tax payers money.

EDIT: if you were given one, fine. Still ppl shouldn't run into stations and take advantage of this.

It's called the Great Reset, not just another excuse to spend your money, don't be a bigot. /s

You can call the TTC corporate lines and complain about the waste, it only takes a few calls to get them alarmed and acting to stop this nonsense.

One mask per customer, not one box.

Ridiculous.

The TTC is multiple billion dollars in the hole for 2020 and needs a huge bailout from the federal government just to survive.

Trust me when I say that they cannot afford to be handing out 'free' boxes of masks.

Union guy hears your job today is to hand out this many boxes of masks.

Proceeds to distribute by box and hit happy hour.

That's what I was thinking, just like those guys that used to hand out flyers on street corners, and you check the nearest garbage bin and there's stacks of em.

Isn’t this worse than not wearing one at all?
