    Taylor Creek you mean?

    If you look at the old boundaries it's surprising how much of East york is suburban. Only like 1/3 of it is inner city. But to be fair, a lot of the other 2/3 is greenspace....

    Racial tension was the primary factor for white flight to the suburbs of many US cities. I don't understand how anyone can say otherwise.

    That's just lazy writing. Journalists should know better. I think other people don't say Lawrence Ave is downtown. But maybe I'm wrong.

    Seniors probably wouldn't be able to hear the noise anyways so it makes no difference.

    I think transporting people to/from work is more important than transporting people to/from the bar. Work is people's livelihoods. Drinking is just leisure.

    I am not employed by the development industry and I don't know their thinking. All I meant to say was that not all condominium development is urban style. Maybe I shouldn't have replied in a snarky...

    It's actually "inner city vs. suburbs." The downtown is only a small part of the inner city. No one refers to the entirety of former Toronto, York and East York as "downtown", because that would be...

    But when they were at the centre, the Liberals were just a more honest and credible version of the Nazis. I think the Liberal's left shift away from Nazism is a good thing, don't you?

    I think that is a good idea, in terms of getting elected. Voters won't blame the province for property tax increases or municipal service cuts, they will blame the municipalites. Mike Harris did it...

    Ontario should probably increase PST/HST. The Feds screwed over Ontario with the equalization payments, so it makes sense to reverse the Feds' 2% GST cut.

    Technically, none of those are true BRT either. True BRT is grade-separated, e.g. Ottawa Transitway. RT = rapid transit = grade-separation.

    More land in Southern Ontario, but a huge portion of it off limits thants to the greenbelt. Hopefully, Hudak will abolish the greenbelt to bring the prices back down and make housing affordable again.

    If Ontario Premiers start building transit, that's a bad sign. Transit planning shouldn't be in the hands of politicians. We can blame David Miller for this trend with his Transit City plan.

    My mom plant mint leaves in her backyard. I heard they repel raccoon. Though my mom doesn't actually plant them for that purpose, she plants them for food (we're Viet).
