    Nice analysis. I don't agree with you on everything, but even though I veer a bit left, I agree on most.

    Just curious, you briefly mention transit, but then didn't go into it? If you were voting...

    I believe the Yonge & Bloor Toby's moved to College & Bathurst and that they are still there (at least they were last time I paid attention).

    Two new spots have opened right at Dundas & Carlaw. On the south-east corner (in the Flat Iron building) is The Blackout Lounge. Kitty-corner in the former Lolabar spot is the appropriately titled...

    Maybe that was the issue then. There' s a reason they don't (generally) go into Union loop though.

    Montreal Advice

    OK, I thought I'd use UT for a bit of crowd-sourcing...

    So I've likely been to Montreal approaching 20 times if I had to guess. I know the city very well. I have a few friends there and always...

    Spadina has never really had ALRVs as they can't fit in Union loop. However, with the current short-turn (at King or Queens Quay) it could be conceivably possible that there may be the odd one.

    There's a strange guy walking up and down the newly expanded pedestrian zone on John Street singing "Rob Ford, Your Days Are Over" again and again. Some people are even taking his picture!

    A bit surprising. Perhaps, TD is taking back the entire floor?

    I do think people in Toronto sometimes look to Tfl, which is mostly legitimately great, without a full understanding of it though. It's an umbrella agency basically, albeit one with teeth. It...

    I also think the bigger issue is that on Sunday mornings the subway opens 3-hours later. That should be corrected immediately. Sundays in Toronto aren't what they were in the Orange Lodge days.

    Honest question, but is there one obvious reason why the DVP is always backed-up around Lawrence? Is it as simple as people getting confused by which way to turn once it hits the 401?

    Thanks for that. Interesting, and quite a bit different than the prominent retail model these days.

    I've always felt this way due to the fact that Ontario controls most of the purse and that the city is merely a creature of the province's whims. However, Hudak's transit plans for the city itself...

    I'd love a +1 or a "thumbs up." There's many times I'd like to recognize a good post.

    I see why "thumbs down" is more problematic though, but hard to say unless it were tested here first.

    I'd...

    Especially considering all "adult" places are grandfathered. I honestly hope we lose none of them.

    I don't find the political spectrum all that useful anymore period, but especially at the local level. Moreover, even when it is useful, most voters don't think in those silos anyway.

    Yes, I suppose you are right come to think of it. Too bad it doesn't look like the Masonic Temple could be reopened as the Concert Hall. It could easily fill some of that gap. I think the...
