    Legally though, I don't think there's anything stopping them from running, besides some backlash for breaking their word.

    I wonder too if Sherway has ever considered where subway access would fit into the mall if the #2 Line were to be extended eventually (a distinct possibility).

    Because we never fully converted, unlike Australia. We are basically like Britain. We use both systems and sometimes badly.

    I think it once largely meant a whole collection of east-end neighbourhoods which would now include Riverside, Leslieville, Chinatown East, Greektown, Danforth by the Valley, India Bazaar, etc. ...

    The "alley" is apparently only open for lunch. Went by for dinner, and not a food truck in sight. :mad:

    The vanishing point makes it look a bit like subway construction. If only!

    Sorry I got it from a Global News article. But upon re-reading it I noticed that it was mentioning the 2012 proposal for The Islands that was different than the current one.

    Club 120 (formerly Goodhandy's) down at Church & Adelaide E will be expanding downstairs into a complex of sorts. They will be taking over the former Spring Rolls and it will become a diner - 120...

    Not The Village per se, but since this is also our de facto "gay scene" thread, I thought I'd mention that Club 120 (formerly Goodhandy's) down at Church & Adelaide E will be expanding downstairs...

    It took 10 years for the congestion to return to pre-charge levels. Despite the fact that the city has been growing at an incredible rate in the interim.

    The fact that they are pitching The Islands as a suitable spot for this makes me think they don't really know what they are doing. There's no way it would EVER be approved for The Islands. ...

    I think the situation is better, but it still happens. In fact, I was on a 30 Lambton bus recently that got in an accident due to this very reason.

    I think Pape is dark blue now too (will have to check though). But should work just as well.

    Not a bad point. In a sense, you'd be pulling City Hall's new green roof out into the walkways. Plus, plus!

    I'm certainly not against "congestion pricing" in certain situations, but I think Chow is ultimately right here. Toronto just doesn't have the alternatives in places at this point. It should be a...

    I thought bus bays were being slowly removed anyway as they tend to cause more problems than they solve. Mostly because drivers won't let the buses merge back into traffic.

    Although, reducing road capacity doesn't automatically equal worse congestion either. Many mature cities reduce road capacity for a variety of reasons and continue to prosper, often even more so...

    The Rexall at Metro Centre is expanding and renovating. It is currently a bit cramped and still has the PharmaPlus look to it. It looks like it will be ~40% larger as they've taken over the kitchen...

    Densifying our Avenues is central to the city's plan. It means more people living in walkabable/transit-oriented neighbourhoods where existing infrastructure can be better utilized. It also takes...

    That is correct. I always take the elevator now, but there is a legitimate concern that the average person just won't be bothered.
