    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    The Ontario line is one idiotic mistake compounded on top of another idiotic mistake on top of another. The subway gets put under Queen because the one term chief planner and failed mayoral candidate thought that her office at city hall needed not one, not two, not three, but four subway...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I warned you people about the Scarborough RT man 3 years ago. He wants his toy light metro line come hell or water. It should be built as standard subway. End of story. Scarborough endured the disasterous undersized tin cans for 35 years but it's closing soon and we can't have a Toronto without...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    From what they tell us the trains they want are 70% of TTC subway capacity at roughly 70% platform length but with much narrower trains. The only way to get that is to pack more people into the smaller space remaining. It's Michael Schabas he's been a snake oil salesman for four decades. The...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    She was part of the problem and it's time to clean up her mess but using tiny Skytrains will only create another problem. No one should believe those fake capacity numbers the Skytrain fanboys throwaround because you need to cram more people into the same amount of space to get it to look on...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    There's both positive and negative to take from this. The positive is we might actually get out from under the crappy Queen street line that the city employed Ryerson planning rejects came up with. The negative continues to be Metrolinx insisting on using crappy sardine can Skytrains instead of...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    You joke about this but before the planners in their city hall ivory towers dropped King Street from consideration their models indicated a looping line to Eastern that swooped back to 100 Queen West would result in measurably less relief for the Yonge line than a straight shot across...

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Still drinking Tory's ScamTrack Koolaid? It's been made clear that's not happening. No surface subway, no TTC fares, not one thing he promised.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    A proposal with origins from Michale Schabas that has horrible drawbacks stemming from toy-sized miniature trains? Nope never happened before! Like if the city had just run the line down King Street like their data originally said was for the best? It's always good to see the planners get...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    Good. It's time to fix Keesamat's mistake brought about by her false promises.

    Toronto Bloor-Yonge Station Capacity Enhancement | ?m | ?s | TTC | AECOM

    King station renovations could have been rolled into new subway construction if Tory, Keesmat, and other city hall insiders weren't pressed to force feed city hall with 4 subway stations.

    Toronto CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    It will always be the Toronto Postal Delivery Building to me.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Refer to the "Sumach" station they wanted to put under the highway next to a bunch of low rise houses, a dealership, a vet shop, and an elementary school. Ever since the new office buildings and George Brown opened up on that stretch of King there has been foot traffic crossing the road at all...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    We already know what Michael Shambles sardine cans are like in Scarborough. He's not an expert he's a pusher. Just like the RT disaster it will be 85% full on the first day with no room for expansion because everything is stretched to the limit just to make his product viable. I thought...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Yet here we are. The person you were quoting is all in favour of a city hall subway because he insisted Scamtrack is a surface subway that makes a King subway redundant and obsolete. It's enough to make me wonder if they have an office at city hall, possibly in team Tory. Let's review: NO 5...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Speaking for myself it has nothing to do with political stripes. I'm in favour of properly planned subways as many here are. My problem is with jank being peddled by snake oil salesmen. The 30 year long Scarborough LRT disaster was foisted upon us by a Kennedy School flunky and we don't need...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I don't want to be seen as defending or agreeing with Burloak but there is a point here. The city or Metrolinx may have been planning the west and north parts of the line together in the most technically correct sense but they proceeded as if each piece was in a vacuum. It was like a group...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    For those complaining about the premier's plan, aren't you happy Team Tory and Keesmat Crew rejected a Brimley for the alignment immediately at stage 1 of the process despite the route winning in all of the city's planning metrics scorecard?

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    If you put any weight into the paperwork the bureacrats produced thus far then a King/Wellington line always made more sense from a transportation and development angle. The city's own planning docs said so. It was only when Tory and Keesmat's crew sunk their teeth into the plan that Queen...

    Toronto Eglinton Line 5 Crosstown West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    You should know by now that's the current planning regime MO. They did the fixing to select Mccowan and Queen for their subways and they're doing another dishonest evaluation to force their streetcars on Eglinton West. It's the planning regime's fault for not putting forward a good and...
