They have trolleybuses in Vancouver, and they've run double deckers under the wires before.
Don't have to go to Vancouver. Megabus doubledeckers served the old bus terminal at Bay/Dundas until recently. And there's no way in or out of there without crossing under TTC streetcar wires. Bhad is simply wrong.

It has more to do with the height of some of the railroad overpasses in the city along with some roads too. Also not every station could accommodate them with out a lot of work.

The last four photos, is that the location for the second entrance?
Both entrances are on the north side of Eglinton. You can see one of them as the large concrete monolith at the extreme right-hand side of the first two images.

This appears to be the construction site for the upcoming CentreCourt Condo, which is at the south-west corner of the intersection.

There's actually a potential third entrance in the CentreCourt Condo.

Mississauga, where cars rule city growth
First time on a Sunday that I saw no one working on the ROW. Lots of rail to see rubber molding wrap on both side of the rail. Not sure how that will not be an impact on testing the cars unless testing is at night.

Signs up at intersections on both sides of the pole warning everyone about testing the cars, but no shot of one at this time.

There is (or was supposed to be) a knock-out panel within the station, yes.

But did they say that they were going to build that entrance there as part of the building construction? If so, that's fantastic news.

The project name is actually The Forest Hill Condominiums, though CentreCourt is the name of the developer.
