    Toronto The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    I think that was a misinterpretation. It is 5k sqft. 5k is a lot of people. Cocktail party spacing that works out to about 500 people. https://thewelltoronto.com/work/event-bookings/

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    Hydrogen has the small problem of being a thermodynamically silly idea. It isn't scalable and it isn't economic. If we are suggesting to make it out of natural gas, we'd be better off burning the gas directly and skipping the trillion dollar greenwashing infrastructure. If we are suggesting...

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    Is that the question? The timescale is maybe up for debate, but it is going to happen.

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Wow, this is a very important detail. There are observers I respect like Mike Moffat and Ben Rabidoux decrying this story. It is very important context to include that this was a related party tax avoidance situation, not an innocent tenant.

    People laughed at Toyota and Hyundai, too.

    2024 Mississauga Mayoral Byelection Transit Plans

    I think changing the Dundas BRT to LRT is the dodgiest suggestion. If Milton Line is upgraded to allow all-day service, the BRT is not all that useful for getting to Kipling station. So the BRT is more for movement directly on the corridor, not about shuttling people to Kipling.

    2024 Mississauga Mayoral Byelection Transit Plans

    It feels rather moot. The mayor of Mississauga is not empowered to realize such a plan. At most, they could advocate to Metrolinx/Province to include in the RTP. This is like the student council president promising to make the cafeteria lunches taste better. Rather unserious when it comes to...

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    If I could order something and get it from the condo lobby in 15 minutes for free vs paying $10 for instacart to bring it to my door, I could perhaps be persuaded to deliver it myself. Maybe Amazon could hire people who live in the building to bring it from the lobby to the door for an extra...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Those rich people move into new units, freeing up where they used to live for slightly less wealthy people, who then free up space for less wealthy yet, and so on. Adding "luxury" supply still trickles down. No one is going to be building new units without AC, insuite laundry or dishwashers for...

    Road Safety & Vision Zero Plan

    I think sidewalk with concrete is a bit closer to the intent where it tells drivers they are crossing pedestrian space.

    Road Safety & Vision Zero Plan

    Kitchener has implemented a continuous sidewalk. https://kitchener.ctvnews.ca/kitchener-introduces-new-continuous-sidewalk-1.6888610

    Mississauga Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    In Vancouver, do they refer to them as such? They have Canada Line, Millennium Line, etc. I expect exactly no one to refer to this as the McCallion line except official communication.

    First EV garbage truck in Ontario

    I like this approach in NL for things like townhouse complexes. Wheelie bins are not very practical for the tight private drives, and they take up a lot of room. Not everyone has appropriate outdoor storage.

    First EV garbage truck in Ontario

    Under the new requirements, all hybrid and electric vehicles will now be required to have sound emitters that would produce noise at low speeds. Automakers can determine the type of sound the vehicle makes, but the volume and pitch must allow a road user to hear if a vehicle is speeding up or...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    For what it's worth, Bill recently had Bill Burr on his podcast, who basically called him out on his smug self-satisfaction and condescension. Maher was trying to keep it amiable but I don't think Burr was saying it jest. I used to not mind Maher, but he is definitely becoming more like an old...

    LCBO / The Beer Store

    Consequences for shoplifting. If people walk into LCBO with a duffle bag, load it up and casually walk out, that is an indication that they know there is a fundamental breakdown of the rule of law.

    The Climate Change Thread

    My understanding is that best practice of forest management is not to prevent fires, as this allows for accumulation of fuel leading to large, uncontrollable fires. Instead management should encourage regular, if not prescribed, burns. It's a bit misleading to characterize carbon in biomass as...

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    I had a Mazda 3 for 13 years and the most repairs I had that could be attributed to rough roads is a control arm. Then, not Toronto rough. I replaced it with a a bigger car when it got totaled in a collision last year.

    The Climate Change Thread

    Is there much Canada can do, practically, to control the fires? The accumulated fuel needs to burn eventually. At most we can mitigate damage to property and loss of life. I am doubtful we can improve downstream air quality.

    Toronto The Well | 174.03m | 46s | RioCan | Hariri Pontarini

    It's one thing to pull up the pavers as long as they relay them nicely. If this is an asphalt patch we need to start a letter writing campaign.
