Event Details

Communicating Transportation 

Transportation in the Toronto area is always big news - sometimes good, sometimes not so good.  Join us for an illuminating evening with three of the best known communicators on transportation issues as they dissect how they approach communicating in a 24/7 world, where public and customer expectations are always high. 



Anne Marie Aikins - Senior Manager, Media Relations at Metrolinx

For the past 5 years, Anne Marie has been the chief spokesperson at Metrolinx, which includes GO Transit, UP Express, PRESTO and new services being built such as Crosstown. A former journalist and author, Anne Marie held similar positions at Toronto Public Library and Toronto Public Health before joining Metrolinx.


Tess Kalinowski - Real Estate Reporter at the Toronto Star

Tess Kalinowski has spent eight of her 17 years with the Toronto Star as the paper's transportation reporter. Fed up with the recurring Scarborough subway debate, she moved to the real estate beat last year. In a past life, Tess was deputy managing editor of the London Free Press. A daily GO Transit commuter, she lives in Mississauga where she spends an inordinate amount of time chauffeuring her teenaged daughter, who has zero interest in learning to drive. 


Brad Ross - Executive Director Corporate Communications, TTC 

Brad Ross joined the TTC in 2008. Three weeks later, the TTC went on strike. To say it hasn’t stopped since would be an understatement. Brad eagerly engages with customers and the public on social media and ensures the TTC is honest, open and transparent in its communications, which is vital for the credibility and reputation of the TTC.



Anna Pace 

Anna Pace has over 35 years of experience in transit planning and governance, intergovernmental relations and community relations at Metro Toronto, the City of Toronto, TTC and Metrolinx and a founding member of WTS Toronto Area Chapter. Anna is currently trying out retirement.
