Ummm...are they using the french style comma for decimals or should that read, "in $ thousands" instead? I find it hard to believe such a grade separation will cost almost $93 Billion!

I've read these for so long I'm just used to the way the City words these (or writes them numerically), LOL This is a 93M project.

The table says in $ Thousands.

The clearly incompetent person who put the table in the power-point said in $ Millions. Which would mean that the total amount of all the projects is 6.8 trillion dollars! 🤣

Always fun to see Canpa references. Some history here in case some aren't familiar.

Isn't it the exact same as the Metrolinx blog post but with advertisements? What was the additional information?
Did you read what I posted from ML and compare it to to the other posting?? If so, you would have seen things not shown in ML posting.

To be fair, the Metrolinx blog post did include a YouTube video explaining the process. This was not included in the Mass Transit post.
