    FastLane: Gil Penalosa’s transit platform for Toronto

    Not sure about all those listed, but the Humber Loop area and Park Lawn/Lake Shore in Etobicoke have higher densities than any of the communities along the lanes he is proposing. This is not a "subway for everybody" scenario. Queensway and Lakeshore should have dedicated bus and streetcar...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I wish the would construct in a way that we could open a few stations at a time instead of waiting for the whole damn thing to be done.

    Toronto | 2280 Dundas West | 127.5m | 38s | Choice Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Yes, totally agree. Also Re: French boards, they share a secondary school that is very close to this site, so I don't think either would be interested in this location.

    Toronto | 2280 Dundas West | 127.5m | 38s | Choice Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    I'd be interested in seeing the terms of that lease. If the TDSB co-develops the land as a new school, I don't see why they would first have to offer it to the other boards, since it would just be like a school renovation on the lands. Anyway, just adding my thoughts at how ludicrous it is that...

    Toronto | 2280 Dundas West | 127.5m | 38s | Choice Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Is there anything stopping TDSB from evicting TCDSB here and just working with the developer, and having the new school be a new school for everyone (and not just catholics)?

    Toronto | Mississauga Hospital Redevelopment | ?m | 24s | Trillium Health Partners | Stantec

    Sorry to respond to this old post. But I do think the government should make it simple for government workers to work closer to home so we don't need to waste this much money on parking. There are nurses who travel hours to get to their hospital because it happened to be the hospital hiring at...

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    I found this interesting. " over 90% of Torontonians prefer independent businesses for specialty food, personal services, restaurants, and bars." I think it's a popular sentiment to want to be someone who prefers small businesses (or present oneself as someone who does in a survey), but people...

    Electoral Boundaries 2022

    The Humber riding is interesting for sure, the demos and SES of the Kingsway are so different than York/Weston.

    Toronto | Thirty Six Zorra Condominiums | 113.68m | 35s | Altree | Graziani + Corazza

    I still get ads for this, with generous incentives. Are they having trouble selling here?

    2022 Municipal Election: Council Races

    Mark Grimes filed today, running in Etobicoke-Lakeshore again. He got 40% last time, but the anti-Grimes vote was split between Morley and Gough. This time Morley is the clear alternative so if she takes their (Morley + Gough) combined total, she would win.

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    To be clear, I don't think having questions shows disdain, it's the words you chose in your questions that show the disdain. "So landlords will be required to install AC in each unit?" --> It's very leading, to require someone to do something implies the action is against one's will. A better...

    Toronto Media Landscape and Personalities

    I don't know how they save money here, unless Omar is going to take a pay cut? My guess is that Lisa's contract didn't include/allow for additional digital/streaming segments? Could be that Omar's contract is much more broad if the reason they are giving is "Changing viewer habits".

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    Why so much disdain for an idea that would make life more comfortable for people? For pets? If you own rental property in Toronto, you are doing pretty well. If the idea of installing AC in your units (or any other government policy that would cost you money) upsets you, then maybe invest...

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    My understanding is that the ticketing at High Park has been almost universally for failing to stop at stop signs, which can kill or seriously harm people. I considered hoping on my bike to go to the bike protest yesterday, opted not to. The media showed a clip of a cyclist going through a...

    Toronto | Backyard Neighbourhood Condos | 24.99m | 10s | VANDYK | Kohn

    What happened to that Berry Road Food Co-op? Is there another grocer moving in?

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    Oh definitely. I think it goes without saying that some drivers are awful people though. That's a common sentiment in Toronto. I don't think that same sentiment exists about some cyclists, as it also should. There are shitty drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    In my experience, if a vehicle stops in a car lane, people in cars tend to go around the vehicle, switch lanes and then return to that lane without much fanfare. There are always cars, UPS, Canada Post, vehicles in lanes parked where they shouldn't be, but we've learned to live with it, go...

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    I mean, I'm a cyclist, driver and pedestrian. I think cyclist have the worst reputation of getting mad when something gets in our way. In my car, if there's something in front of me on the street, I slow down or stop. If something is in the bike lane in front of me, cyclists sound their bells...

    2022 Municipal Election: Council Races

    Holyday has been there less than a decade, so I wouldn't say he's a "long-term" seat filler. I do hope someone challenges him, hopefully the more moderate John Campbell runs again since it was close last time.
