Well the Eglinton West LRT has the least planning work out of everything here but all the more reason the Ontario Line will not meet it's 2027 date
The tailback tunnels and track west of the Mt. Dennis Station have already been built to west of Weston Road. Plans for the tunnels west to the portals above Eglinton Flats (Jane Street) should be easy to complete. It's the "underground" stations to Renforth that would be the stumbling block(s).

Unless somehow they managed to tunnel them when no one was looking, the tailtracks and tunnels end about 200 feet east of Weston Road, not west.

The Ontario Line will have PSD's as per the business case.

Everyone can stop debating them now lol, they are good and the cities with good transit tend to implement them.
Don't trust the business case, Ottawa was supposed to have them too but they got value engineered out during the p3 bids to stay within the budget envelope.

This has already happened twice in Canada alone, if the Government of Ontario can't learn from the challenges with the Canada Line and the Confederation line, we will see this a lot more throughout Canada, not just on the Ontario line.

"Anne Marie Aikins, spokesperson for the provincial transit agency, wouldn't reveal how much the latest campaign costs, saying those details require a freedom of information request."
Oh for gods sake. THIS is when I get annoyed. Her statement amounts to a declaration that she knows it is information she is REQUIRED to disclose but won't anyway.

This is the kind of thing that should actually be taken as misconduct. Come to think of it, I'd like to revise freedom of information to have some means of punishing willful nondisclosure.

Facebook (and Instagram by extension, because Zucks is greedy and knows that less than half of Instagrammers know that their platform of choice is owned by Facebook) should ban political advertising (and political advocacy advertising by extension). Twitter just banned political advertising ahead of the British elections (Twitter could have done it much sooner). The three have numerous problems with toxicity, especially when it comes to political discussions and political advertising in any form contribute to the filter bubble, which enforces confirmation bias, regardless of one's political views, leading to balkanization and toxicity when confronted with opposing views. How else are the three "free" for users?
