    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    If you look across the political history of Ontario’s infrastructure development, it’s fairly evident how Ontario’s chronic inability to focus on long-term goals has hindered it’s abilities to properly develop its cities and infrastructure. Ontario’s postwar period was characterized by massive...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Powerful governance and the desire for stability are concerns that have to be balanced against each other. An overabundance of either power or stability is deeply problematic for a government. And imo, all the great political institutions through history have a legacy of policy continuation and...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    If municipalities desire stability in the transit building process, it might be wise for them to circumvent Queen’s Park, and directly advocate to the federal government for transit funding. The federal government is a powerful stakeholder that will demand responsibility and accountability from...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    A big issue with Canada’s provincial governments is their relative instability and lack of checks on their power. 1. Canada’s federal government has a senate, which stops madman Prime Ministers and their parties from doing too much damage when they’re in power. This has the effect of...

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    I feel like you could say this about Toronto’s architecture as a whole (it is getting better though!)

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I’d characterize Ontario’s political culture as shady and opaque. I don’t like it. The Government of Ontario (the institution) feels like it doesn't have any particular political philosophy beyond benefitting special interests. It was like that when the Liberals were in power, and Ford has...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Queen’s Park needs to invest several billion dollars into modernizing the streetcar network. The TTC and City and broke. Drawing blood from a stone will bare no fruit. The streetcar network is as important as any subway line, and critical for the vitality of our regional and national, so I...

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    The system would account for the variables that it’s designed to account for. Uber already has technology that can see how long it takes customers to walk to or from vehicles when starting or ending a trip. The same technique can be modified for general purpose navigation devices. Me. Just...

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    I just took note of how Google Maps doesn’t include time looking for parking in their travel time estimates. That can make driving look more competitive than it really is. For example, I was just looking at some trip options to get downtown. Google estimated 25 mins for driving, vs 35 mins for...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    I can’t believe Caroline Mulroney really used “blame the Liberals“ as an excuse. A blatant lack of accountability from the transport minister.

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

    A cobblestone road surface on Wellington would be a nice touch.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Umm… so how do the cars pass each other in a single-file tunnel? Or are they going to have multiple lanes of traffic in this underground highwa… um, I mean… HyperLoop

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    It’s too bad this building doesn’t have a lighting feature. At this height, it would nicely complement the CN Tower at night

    Toronto Pinnacle One Yonge | 345.5m | 105s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Curiously, the main observation deck of the CN Tower is precisely 346 metres tall: https://www.cntower.ca/inspiring-by-day-stellar-by-night

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    These are no excuse for simultaneous strikes. The government must do a better job at managing these negotiations. The government‘s failure to keep schools and transit open is pure incompetence.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Sources tell me its actually for a mini-hyperloop

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    So we’re under threat simultaneous school and transit strikes? Are we supposed to even have a functioning economy on Monday? Get the deal done.
