    There are some decent off road trails that connect to most of those locations fortunately

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    I'm not a fan of foot dragging, delays, dithering, etc, but I would still have it switched back now, and I don't think it would be built any later. Another thing I don't like about all this, is everyone was going along with LRT just fine, it was approved and everything, but when enough selfish...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    I would have enjoyed and been better served by Transit City

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    As well. when the decision was made to abandon extending the tunnel to Don Mills, it looked like the PC's were going to win the upcoming election, which would have put the entire line east of Young at risk since there it was not yet awarded for construction.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    I don't remember that the EELRT was ever actually scrapped, or Council ever voting to do something else with the funding, Of course Tory would not have let pesky details like that stop the Subway.

    A traffic stop is not high risk according to you, yet an officer was killed by a gun in a country where you would say they are doing things right, you can't say in advance where the risk is. I know an officer who would be dead right now if not for having a gun in a situation that you would have...

    An unarmed traffic cop in New Zealand was just shot and killed on a traffic stop, I don't suppose you would rather that have happened than having to endure the horror of seeing a cop carrying a gun?

    They just need an app for requesting a stop.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    My bus trips would have been on LRT, if not for this subway.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Nope, it's a shitty plan that wastes a staggering amount of money and came about for political reasons, and cost Scarborough a much better and bigger plan, and I would still have them go back now if I could. and yes I live in Scarborough.

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    Yeah there was no reason to think the space would be needed, enough room was left for the planned transit line, and what real reason was there to use it anyway? A surface route is still crossing the same streets, and ducking under those streets can still be done with a route in the middle of the...

    I have been there, did the same, and didn't shoot the bear either.

    Body armor is for bullets, not knives, and the rest of you is still exposed, not sure why you'd want to get into a baton fight with a knife, or spray someone (and yourself- not fun btw), your backup might be having to try and stop you from bleeding out,

    Something I think you should try, have someone, even a smaller person, hold a sharpie with the cap off and try to take them down while they resist, and let me know if you get any ink on you.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I'm not sure how it was going to be made into a streetcar, the estimated speed was close enough to the parallel section of Line 2. A few grade separations would be good though, such as Jane and Kipling, as well as a more direct route to the airport.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    No, the section that is now being constructed underground was always planned to be underground, he did want to have the rest of it out to Kennedy underground as well, but that was thankfully stopped.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Yes I know that Doug has put the Eglinton West LRT extension underground for those ridiculous reasons. The post I was responding to seemed to claim that the Crosstown that is currently under construction was put underground by him.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I can't imagine that the surface shelters were at any stage of design many years ago when the project was taken over. And unless you meant the Eglinton West LRT, Ford did not bury part of this line, it was always planned this way.
