    November 2020 US Election

    I hate to say it but Wayne Lapierre could take an AR-15 and start letting bullets fly in the House of Representatives only to be let off the hook. The NRA is so ingrained in american culture that they can do no wrong if it is justified. The NRA will never be dissolved until the US rewrites...

    Aura is a death sentence for businesses.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Big Bucks but I can see it being spun as a VIA rail make work project.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I am honestly surprised nobody built a bridge over the canal or a tunnel under it. It would make rail traffic so much easier.

    Hmm... I wonder if they could approach John Williams and use the Imperial March. Get some soldiers with respirators to prevent Covid-19 infection and ba boom...

    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    I am thinking more in terms of the economic impact but I get you, my grandmother has a weakened immune system. Air Canada, Porter, et al may not survive. Even major airports may require a bailout if the borders are closed for 2-3 years.

    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    True but at the same time limiting everything for 2-3 years seems excessive. Do you really think keeping the borders closed for 2-3 years is a good idea?

    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    So apparently Theresa Tam is suggesting that we live under a "pandemic situation" for the next two to three years. People were taking that to read that we would be under the same restrictions we are now for the next 2-3 years. While I respect the need to keep Canadians safe I cannot fathom...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I am trying to place this in Bathurst. Where is it going to be located in the station? As for Sherbourne I can see them putting a connection to the elevator in there. Don't forget they are putting in an elevator in Sherbourne station that would be right where the office was located.

    Toronto non-mall retail (Odds & Ends)

    I have an associate trying to convince me to open a Cafe right now in Toronto. I keep telling him that it is not practical given the ongoing pandemic. Rent may be cheap but the industry is unstable right now. It is too risky to open anything. He wanted to put up the capital and split the...

    Some people love it but me personally I would never live Downtown. I'm not too keen on it.

    A few hundred no doubt but it would be a pain in the rear to sort out that mess after 😜

    Toronto | 16 York | 154.83m | 32s | Cadillac Fairview | architectsAlliance

    I grew up in Scarborough and spent a lot of time in Port Perry during the summer months. The few times I slept over at my work (a condo building) I could not get any proper sleep. The noise off York Street and lights in the surrounding office towers made it difficult. In Scarborough it is...

    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    If we have another outbreak I can see them shutting the season down at the risk of being sued by the players.

    Actually the MLS buildings are affected by the lighting at the top of 16 York. Think Kenny Rogers chicken.
