Yet it's worth noting that unchecked growth without matching infrastructure to support it (like, ferinstance, mass transit) is also unsustainable.
There's reason to be negative though. Sure toronto isnt Atlanta but I've been to many cities around the world and Toronto has possibly the worst transit infrastructure of any city I've seen. Certainly of this size and global stature.I think negative views like that don't help matters. They're building transit, albeit in a manner that's dog-slow and weighted down by crippling bureaucracy and political interference.
The topic of this thread is 8 Elm—at the corner of Elm and Yonge streets—and not the entirety of mass transportation in the Golden Horseshoe. Any further posts on that topic in this thread will be deleted and people will go on holiday.There's reason to be negative though.

I mean it wasn't even that long ago that we didnt have the subway extending north to Vaughan.
This city should have 2 to 3 the amount of subway rails it does right now at least. A much wider ranging lrt system (that is improving) better bus service.
That's not to mention the need to interconnect cities in the region. No HSR, no quick direct connections from places like KW area, even Mississauga you pretty much have to take a crummy bus route from MCC to union station. It's almost appalling how bad it is.
With that said, yes they are improving it, but I'd much prefer them focusing on intercity transit options than the presumable billions they're spending on the nightmare that is widening the 401 from Homer Watson to Hurontairo.
