Jeez - didn’t Steve Munro call them out on all the spelling errors on the last Ontario Line presentation? One would imagine that after that the media team would be a little more careful.

A certain number of spelling errors must be present, as a confirmation of authenticity. If they release a communication with no errors at all, the public will be worried that MX has been hacked and the document planted by ransom seekers.

Yup, the most recent shut down was Lakeview in Mississauga.


But before that was the Hearn right in the Portlands. Its still standing, but hasn't been in use for years, though the Nat. Gas powered Portlands Energy is right next to it.

In the USA, electric power companies (who also use coal) operated the electric streetcar companies. Until their anti-trust laws forced them to sell off the traction companies.

say what you want about the Eglinton LRVs, at least they're not just black and white like these guys! Definitely lacking aesthetically. Hopefully Hurontario ends up with slightly nicer livery

the only difference between Finch and Hurontario is that one has a minuscule ttc logo and the other will have the logo of whatever private company that gets contracted to operate on Hurontario.

They have a gray strip at the top but I guess the design doesn't allow it to extend down at the front.
Finch West LRT (and Eglinton Crosstown LRT) livery should match the colour of the line as shown on maps.

From link.
Considering the line has been changed to a gray line for whatever reason, at least that gray strip matches the line's colour!
