    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    If the city was not an incoherently amalgamated mess the decision would have been different and everyone (including inner suburbanites) would have greatly benefited, as every single study on the subject showed.

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    Actually, this is a much better map. There is a very clear urban suburban divide, and those of us who insisted that: a) Toronto desperately needs to de-amalgamate and the whole Tory + Micallef 'One Toronto' non-sense is baseless utopia and b) John Tory is more damaging than even Doug Ford...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    What's a no-brainer on both expressways (but especially in the central Gardiner) are bus lanes. Those bus lanes could also be opened up to commercial vehicles outside of rush hours. Right now it's absurd to see so many GO Buses at capacity during rush hour stuck behind ultra-inefficient...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    The problem with Chow is not that she's divisive, but that she doesn't cater to a large enough percentage of voters. Ford and Tory are products of marketing, and as marketing products a large 'target audience' was selected and catered to. They are reactive, shallow, highly adaptable...

    Who should be mayor of Toronto in 2014?

    1. Goldkind 2. Chow Tory's campaign has been despicable, and Doug Ford is Doug Ford.

    100 Lies of Ford

    Rob Ford promised a large network of new subways would be operational by 2015 in the electoral campaign that brought him to power. Not a single new subway materialised during that timeframe, but he then claimed in his 2014 campaign that he had successfully delivered what he had originally...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    Don't do it. At least Chow will let people who have a clue work towards fixing the city. Pretty much all the planners I know are scared of the prospect of dealing with Tory. Don't let his 'centre/forward' posture fool you, he's the anti-Soknacki (who was of course the best candidate of the bunch).

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    Yes. In most developed countries only about 15% of the population defend creationism. When you consider people of the stature of Tory that number dwindles even further. This guy is a complete disaster of a candidate, and Toronto are too shell-shocked to react. This is our Korean war, people...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Mikey will probably be the de-facto ruler in Ward 2 while Rob sits in bed. Worst case scenario for them is Rob dies and Mikey's chances of keeping the seat are much higher.

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    That's what happens when you listen to experts, academics, and the like. Soknacki's platform was superbly rational, and it's basically impossible to come up with a conservative platform if you do that.

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    For me it's not about 'leaning left' or right, but about having a mayor who can look at problems objectively and lead experts towards finding adequate solutions to those problems while allowing local communities a say. Boris Johnson or Michael Bloomberg definitely fall within the 'global...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    Basically all of this is wrong and terribly uninformed (especially your mode share estimates and your assessment of 'dangerous', as well as your understanding of Bixi). I could go into detail but I'm afraid I'd have to charge you for that. I'll just point out that cycling mode share downtown...
