    By nonsense you mean a dedicated bus lane from the UTS to Kennedy Station?

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    When did any Toronto mayor ever have a funding plan for transit ever? Begging higher levels of government for money has always been part of the process.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Unfunded/Planned)

    My grandma (born in 1909) always called Highway 10 Centre Road. Roads parallel to it were all 1st Line, 2nd Line, etc.

    Toronto | The One | 308.44m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    It’s symptomatic of psychological self defence. Many people, through social conditioning, equate enthusiasm with naivety, being unguarded, and thus weakness. They associate pessimism with worldliness and optimism with being a chump. Deep down they long for a positive outcomes as do the rest of...

    Toronto | ZEN King West | 103m | 31s | CentreCourt | IBI Group

    This is exactly my observation. Well put! I do observe an evolution in this city towards an appreciation of nicer things, but you're quite right, it takes time.

    Toronto Pearson International Airport

    The first sign yesterday that things were different was when Google maps showed a solid green line from Scarborough to the airport midday on Saturday! We went through T3. It was very quiet, but everything was still operational. Staff were all wearing rubber gloves.

    I think the Globe‘s point was that the only reason we’re tearing down 10-storey buildings is because our restrictive land-use policies are pushing developers towards tearing down mid rises and buildings energy-intensive concrete tall ones when we could be tearing down hundreds of km2 of one and...

    Toronto | 88 Queen | 163.06m | 51s | St Thomas Dev | Hariri Pontarini

    My people!!! I told my wife about the demise of this parking lot but she just didn’t get it.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I was really struck by the most recent population projections published by the province: https://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/economy/demographics/projections/table4.html Ontario’s midline population estimate for the City of Toronto is 4,270,000 by 2046. That would make Toronto’s population density...

    I agree! My dad, born in Brampton in 1941, wouldn’t buy a top-end Oldsmobile after receiving an inheritance in 1989 because he thought it was too pretentious. Now he drives a Lexus. I definitely grew up with that austere Methodist mentality and I can also see that it’s definitely fading.

    Toronto | 401 Bay Street (formerly Simpson Tower) | 144m | 33s | Cadillac Fairview | WZMH

    These cool colours, while doing little for the tower, do allow old city hall to stand out better against its background. At least old city hall looks better with this reno, which is... something.
