    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.

    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?

    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.
