    Secession from Ontario, or at least greater political independence, is a common theme on this board. Is this actually an idea that many Torontonians would stand behind en masse? And I'm curious about...

    I agree. There are way too much public workers taking up space on our roads.

    Why do they need to use the roads anyways? It's not like they do real work.

    You get the award for most beautiful fantasy map.

    Criticism:

    The only thing I can think of is that south of Eglinton the Jane LRT would be going through low density residential. Also this...

    I don't think outright fear is unwarranted. I can say for certain that if there's a PC majority I'll have a few restless nights worrying about what they'll do to our city.

    Don't count on the Relief Line being built under a PC gov't.



    I am about 98% sure this won't bbe happeneing.



    It's been like this since right-wing politicians in this province have...

    Planners are actually quite fond of the grid system. It's more efficient than a system of spaghetti lines.
  7. If it reaches construction, yes.

    If it reaches construction, yes.

    I agree completely with what you've said. The province definitely plays a more critical role and the mayor only does have one vote on council. However the point of that post was just to compare Mayor...

    2011 I believe. That's not how I've tallied it though.

    If the project was approved and if the project has successfully reached construction phase, I added it to the administration that the project...

    Removed this post by accident. My bad.

    You seriously think underground LRT aren't subways? I presume it's because of their use of light rail vehicles that you're thinking this.

    Light rail...

    I'd say it doesn't count since it hasn't gotten to the construction phase yet. It could very likely be cancelled in the next few months. When construction does begin then I'd attribute it to Ford.

    The ECLRT was originally approved under Miller's TC plan. We all know that Ford didn't support the project and tried unsuccessfully to kill and then modify Miller's plan. It would be difficult to...

    Eglinton Crosstown: ~12 km
    Spadina Subway: ~ 9 km
  14. I really do love how Ford supporters think of...

    I really do love how Ford supporters think of Ford as a subway champion and Miller as an anti-subway pro-LRT mayor. The reality couldn't be any more different.

    More subways were built under Mayor...

    NO NO NO NO. There are no subway stops on University Avenue. There are several bus stops but no subway stops.

    I've never heard of something as absolutely absurd as having a subway stop on a...

    I suggest you look back in time to the last time the PCs were in power.

    If Hudak wins he'll just say that because if the fiscal irresponsibility of the Liberal gov't, the transit projects he promised can't be built.

    Who wants to form the underground secret society with me?

    West to Dundas West and East to Don Mills? That's actually an okay plan.

    Of course the ridership potential on the extension to Don Mills @ Eglinton is questionable. I'd still like to see a study...

    I'm surprised he'd support an Eglinton Crosstown Subway. West of Jane the line would move less people that the Sheppard Subway if it were extended to STC. I don't understand why he'd want to build a...

    I love how the guy stands there with his signature insincere smile while his campaign staff to deal with TTC security removing them because of their trespassing. Looks like great leadership to me.

    So Tim Hudak was holding an unauthorized press conference on a train today. His activities caused a delay on the 1 Yonge Line. After security removed him from TTC property his staff criticized the...

    Sure it would make the it harder for the province to pass legislation. That's a good thing. The province bears way too much power over municipalities.

    Veto powers aren't unusual. What ungovernable situation do you envision? The only times I see that happening is if the provincial gov't becomes overbearing (eg. Using legislation to destroy...

    I'm more concerned about his plan to have the provincial gov't take control of our subways. Judging from the Harris era PC gov't, I'm sure they'll upload the subways to the province even if everyone...
