    Population of Toronto (Including Census Counts)

    I recall similar skepticism und the 2016 number as it was essentially flat.....can't specifically say people called it an "undercount" but people did doubt the number.

    Population of Toronto (Including Census Counts)

    I have a theory. Mississauga may be in a pause before launching higher.....leading up to 2016 they essentially ran out of land for ground based housing (the traditional growth for all burbs).....so their future growth had to be up....but those types of new housing take years to build after a...

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    My post was a tongue-in-cheek joke about buses (see included winky face) having to be "stuck in traffic" (from the post I responded to. But to be clear, yes....each form of system has advantages and disadvantages in different circumstances.

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    not aimed at you...it is just a bit silly that they keep repeating this rather obvious error.

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    it literally still says Main Street to Brampton GO in that slide

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    They keep repeating this stupid line in all their presentations: Fully funded Light Rail Transit from Main Street to Brampton GO (Provincial ask $850M Surely they mean from Steeles to Brampton GO.......presentations lose/lack credibitlity when they start with such a dumb, easy to spot/change/...

    Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Maybe i have this wrong...but the Mississauga loop is far more extensive than a simple "dead end" turn around....isn't a +/- minus 2 mile loop around the businesses residences of the MCC with multiple (3?) stops and running in both directions in mixed traffic? Would they really have cut this...

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    There is one kinda obvious advantage....escalators need maintenance and sometimes break.....having them split allows that to be done in stages and allows for better passenger experience while the work is being done.

    New Rogers Brampton Campus (Rogers, ?, ?)

    I think they enjoy having a logistics facility/warehouse at this location.

    New Rogers Brampton Campus (Rogers, ?, ?)

    These lands...the pink stripy bits are not owned by the proponent and people are wondering why they asked, and the city agreed, to include them. https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/threads/go-transit-service-thread-including-extensions.4952/post-1777962

    Toronto | 31-33 George St N (Brampton) | 153.95m | 42s | Greenwin | Sweeny &Co

    I really like (and hope it survives) the inclusion of a small hotel component in this project. One (of the many) things that have held DT Brampton back is things missing that are in most city cores .....and some sort of hotel is on that list (others like small things like higher level govt...

    New Rogers Brampton Campus (Rogers, ?, ?)

    Canadian Tire and Choice are objecting to the MZO that has been requested for the lands on the North West quadrant of Steeles and Bramalea (across from the GO station) but which also encompasses (not sure why, never read it) their lands on the SouthWest.
