    You bike because you rely on the TTC and you don't need a car ever.

    If someone is forced to buy a car to commute to work, then that means they have a car. Why would you bike to the grocery store...

    The City gets around $160M annually from the Ontario Gas Tax. In 2012, $91.6M in gas tax funding was used for the TTC's operating costs, and $75.0M was used for the TTC's capital costs, so that's...

    The DRL proposal seem to be missing the point. Relieving Yonge from the East, that's the priority. Union to Sheppard-Don Mills should be the first phase(s). We can think about DRL west of Union...

    In a world where most of Jane could be more than 4 lanes wide and where a DRL proposal did not exist, then the Jane LRT would perhaps be a good idea. But unfortunately we don't live in that world.

    And I know you like denying the truth, ShonTron. But seriously:

    Vaughan: 4 high rises under construction
    Markham: 9
    Richmond Hill: 10
    Oakville: 2
    Burlington: 2
    Mississauga: 6
    Brampton: 1

    It doesn't matter what is faster or more comfortable. People in Richmond Hill and Mississauga just live too far away from work to bike. The bike is simply not an option. But Richmond Hill and...

    It doesn't seem like Brampton has much redevelopment potential outside Shopper's World and Queen Street anyways... And they never preserved any additional land for high density. Compare Brampton to...

    I guess Abacus is EKOS in disguise. Their names do sound sort of similar. The Abacus aka EKOS poll being commissioned by the Toronto Sun, the left-wing bias couldn't be more obvious.

    I don't see why naturalization matters. The DVP and Richmond Hill Line would be in the floodplain no matter what. It's called a "floodplain" for a reason.

    Bunching is just a reality of extremely busy and frequent surface routes. Mississauga has the same problem along Dundas and Hurontario. Even back when the 19 was 10 minutes, there was bunching....

    YRT ridership fell 7% in January 2014 compared to January 2013. Yikes.

    The death spiral continues. That's what happens when you keep raising fares: lost ridership, lost revenue, cut service,...

    Mississauga? I never liked the loop or branch to MCC, but that is debatable. The DRL I never noticed. Toronto needs another strong north-south transit corridor, and I don't think that Richmond Hill...

    In the UK they have started privatizing police service, and in the US they have privatized prisons. Perhaps Ontario should consider these options as well.

    The province don't build or plan anything. Transit is up to municipalities. Don't blame them for the municipalities' lack of action/plans. The province can't fund non-existing projects. They can fund...

    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.

    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.
