    Eg west is pointless if there is a good GO connection to the airport. It would take well over an hour using the LRT to get to the airport from downtown, or you could take GO in ~30 minutes. there is...

    the 407 could easily support 120km/h. Really its about the design speed of the highway, the central portion of the 401 simply isn't designed for that sort of speed. Meanwhile you regularly see people...

    the dollar figures behind it however point to otherwise. $400 million buys you a whole lot more than just a rebuilt interior.

    its 3 lanes, plus parking. No, things haven't changed. Yes, the development was unanimously approved by council. Yes, it has full support of local residents. I don't understand the problem here? The...
