    Sloppy Construction on St Clair ROW

    I've also seen the buses running alongside the streetcars (I also live off of st.clair w). Also, noticed that they have finally started installing the shelters - saw them at Deer Park and Avenue Road stops - no roof element yet, just support pillars and signage.

    The last slide showing cutaway/Bay Street entrance is displayed incorrectly-- should be reversed (ie. mirror image); today's Toronto Star displays it correctly; city's website still shows it in reverse.
