    Greece

    So what d'you folks think about Greece? It's so sad to me. Always hanging by a thread... ...I think it would be best if they just kicked them out of the eurozone. :/

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Expansion (Speculative)

    Here they mention potential federal funding... http://toronto.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20120611/mayor-rob-ford-ttc-sheppard-120611/20120611?hub=TorontoNewHome Suppose that Ford gets some of that sweet funding for eastbound expansion. Is there anything to stop that expansion from...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Expansion (Speculative)

    Is it possible for Ford to block the construction of the sheppard LRT? Subway is clearly superior for part of that distance.

    2011-2012 Leafs

    I used to like the leafs. But then they changed this team completely. It does not have that character that it used to. I just don't have much love for it. And then to get verseteeg from chicago for like nothing, and to lose him to florida (where he's producing like a point per game) for...

    What is the current state of affairs in the attempt to expand the sheppard subway? Sorry for not hanging around much... been so busy. :/

    Iceland considering to adopt Loonie

    I am surprised that they prefer the canadian dollar to the norwegian krona. But anyways, suppose they took the dollar... they won't be able to print it!

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Expansion (Speculative)

    I would like to see a permanent funding solution. Like a casino or something that will always sends revenues towards subway construction. So that this would be used for future subway construction, not just a little bit of sheppard. Lets keep in mind, some people are willing to travel in...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Expansion (Speculative)

    :) I'd be happy if they extend it any bit. Of course, I want more, but heck, 2-3 stops is good enough for me for now. The thing is that many cities in the world are expanding their systems very rapidly. If they can do that surely we can get a SMALL extension...

    Sorry to all those anti-subway lrt fanatics... but this is a done deal. Thought Miller's authoritarian LRT fanaticism was all okay? Now you are getting your own medicine. Enjoy...

    Why to support the Liberal Party

    The Liberal are just another right wing party, just not as far right as the conservative party. In other words, why look at them as having any difference? NDP! It's the only alternative. The liberals campaign on the left sometimes, only to take away NDP votes. I hope they enjoy being...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Expansion (Speculative)

    Having been in Chicago for years, I can tell you that rapid transit on the ground simply sucks so bad that you can not imagine. It 'causes such traffic problems that it's simply miserable. Underground is the better long term investment. Now you might say hey, it need not be ON THE GROUND. And so...

    Durr, don't take my idea and pass it on as your own. Duurrr. That's my insanity, not yours. If Moscow can do this, why can't we? I don't get why there would be higher cost. sixrings, bro, we know you have a boner for LRT. But that crap's inferior. It's simply trolling to bother us with...

    We gotta find a way. How does cutting public employee benefits, tiff districts, and slashing public school funding? Just gotta tighten the belt and hope that nobody turns blue. ^^ X(

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

    Dumb question perhaps... any mention of the upgradeability to HRT? is it still not upgradeable as in early bozo-tramsit-city-plans?

    I am 100% sold on extending this thing to warden asap. Suppose it's a billion dollars... that's fair. What's the best way to lobby the administration to just get moving on this? If people can protest wall-street, thеy can protest lack of subway building too.

    That cost there sounds ridiculous. If we connected the line to downsview... that would cost a billion. Taking it to v.p. would be less than 500 million. Perhaps much less if the stations are modest.

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

    It is because of the subway, not because of the lrt. Subway always has more impact.
