What Canadian city had the first subway?
Toronto was the first Canadian city to have a subway. The proposal for a subway was overwhelmingly approved by Toronto's voters in a 1946 plebiscite. The federal government had originally promised to pay for 20% of the project, but later reneged. As a result, construction did not begin until September 8, 1949. Toronto's subway was officially opened on March 30, 1954, by Toronto Mayor Allan Lamport and Ontario Premier Leslie Frost.
