    Roads: Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration (City of Toronto, UC)

    Looks like all lanes are open north and southbound! The commute was sooooo much smoother this evening.

    Roads: Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration (City of Toronto, UC)

    Oh, it's pretty darn bad. They had St. Alban's closed for a few days under Kipling, and starting late last week, they closed one lane on St. Alban's west of Kipling. During rush hour, it can be pretty bananas. That second set of lights they installed at Subway Crescent, I completely...

    Well, that's unfortunate and just makes the situation worse.

    Roads: Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration (City of Toronto, UC)

    Northbound traffic during rush hour STINKS. The 45 and 46 enter Kipling at St. Alban's Road, which hits Kipling on the "before" side of the traffic lights, but traffic is insanely backed up at that point. Vehicles now enter Kipling based solely on the good will of drivers on Kipling...

    Roads: Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration (City of Toronto, UC)

    I know that these are just growing pains, but there needs to be better signal coordination between the Bloor/Kipling and Dundas/Kipling traffic lights. It's too easy to get stuck in a bad timing loop during rush hour, when there are plenty of people lining up on Bloor to turn north onto...

    I thought the rumour was that it Elena Basso/Elena Johnson/Elena Johnson-Basso. That could just be coincidence with the letters though.

    I like Cynthia and respect her tenacity - she's as tough as nails and I'm certainly glad we had her on our side in this campaign - but I highly doubt this goes anywhere.

    Andrew Young made an interesting point on Twitter. There are people who will vote Conservative no matter what. Combine that with the map of the vote split, where we saw Doug Ford take 33% of the Toronto wards against sensible, seasoned choices like John Tory or Olivia Chow. All of a sudden...

    More so than that, I'm not at all looking forward to the inevitable lionizing of Ford that is going to occur after he dies.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Sorry, I realize I wasn't clear - when I said "Ward 5 might have been more winnable", it was purely speculative. I don't know anything about the other candidates. DiCiano was brilliant with that Islington/Bloor office. Holy visibility, Batman.

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I can correct you here. Ease of access had nothing to do with it at all. He knew from day 1 that even without a Ford in the race, Ward 2 was going to be a challenge for him. He knew that he had no name recognition and that he would never, ever get the support of the Fords given his politics...

    Wow, that picture takes me back!

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    Stephen Holyday's campaign flew under the radar, but it was really cynical. People complained (wrongly) about Olivia Chow riding Jack Layton's coattails, but Stephen Holyday not only did this - he advertised it. He canvassed with Doug and he handed out flyers with a photo of him back-to-back...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I have an immense amount of respect for Ms Baskin for what she decided to do. Even if she was a fringe candidate, making those steps is hard. That said, this was very difficult to read. There were typos and grammatical errors all over, and her age and maturity level really shone through.

    He won't debate, everyone will call him out on it, and it likely won't affect his popularity at all.

    You raise a very good point. There's no universe where Mikey doesn't resign as trustee and run in a Ward 2 by-election. Trustee is just a position to keep him warm while the family waits to push him into the big pond. He'll almost certainly run in 2018. Unfortunately, ranked ballots wouldn't...

    I can confirm that a ton of Domise signs were stolen and/or vandalized multiple times, to the point that Andray straight-up stopped putting them on peoples' lawns for their own safety. I don't know how much that accounts for, but even last night, Andray's signs were torn up and tossed over the...

    Thanks kindly for the kind words. Andray was upbeat about it and is committed to working for Ward 2 outside of council. Hard loss, but the team has his back for whatever happens next. Those mayoral numbers though... Yikes. I can't believe Doug got so much support.

    Sigh. Andray in third place, single digit support? That hurts. We worked so hard.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's simply too sick to step outside. https://twitter.com/CynthiaAmsden/status/526408453280264192 "NEWSFLASH @newstalk1010 is reporting Rob Ford is back in hospital. ON THE DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. Shouldn't Ward 2 voters be aware? @CP24"
