Mayor Rob Ford's subway plan will leave more losers than winners when it comes to access to public transit, two environmental groups warned Wednesday.

"We're here today essentially because there has been a heck of a lot of talk about transit in the last while but unfortunately most of it has been of the political variety," Jamie Kirkpatrick, the alliance's transit campaigner, told reporters. "We haven't really talked about who wins with what plan … Pembina did a great report and we analyzed it and put it together in map form here just to show the fact there is winners and losers out there and we want to focus on the plan that brings the most winners to Toronto."
