He was on the radio this morning. So basically, it would be just as bad with him as mayor.
Or the irony that the subway plan will stop short of Malvern, another area with poor transit access and a high percentage of recent immigrants.By the way, what about all the people of Rexdale (including immigrants!) that are left out of your Dumb Track plan? Why does it turn west towards a bunch of rich white neighbourhoods and suburban development sites. Tory, do you hate Etobicoke north? Is it fair if I call you a racist?
Robbie and Dougie were/are all about arm waving but real work, and blame, is to be squarely on the shoulders of those who work for a living.The Fords said the private sector will help to build the subway, subway, subway. Still waiting...
The Gardiner East needed to be dealt with instead of pushing the incurred debt forward to others and costs create a bigger hole.Tory's defence of the Scarborough subway by tagging its opponents as anti-immigrant and anti-Scarborough shows he's Rob Ford in a better suit. The Mayor's leap into the gutter of identity politics implies that even he knows it's impossible to make a rational case for the Scarborough subway on the numbers. For a self-described fiscal conservative, he's pretty willing to blow really big money on uneconomic projects like the Gardiner East rebuild, Scarborough subway, and Smart Track (whatever that is). We'll be paying for his mistakes - financially and in continuing to have a dysfunctional transportation system - for decades.

Imagine if Tory actually believed this. He could be championing bringing the Relief Line north to Eglinton, giving subway access to the people of Thorncliffe and Flemingdon Park, reducing their commuting times to downtown by 60%, from 40-50 minutes to a mere 15-20 minutes.
It seems his office took notice of the backlash.
What a nice non-apology.
