That doesn't take in account of other economical values. Streetcars aren't the only thing affected by this, the amount of emergency calls, people's lives at risk, cleanup, flooded basements, insurance going up, disease spread around to wildlife that would after humans, etc. 15 more streetcars ain't going to revive you if you unfortunately drowned in this mess.
Edit: Nor will it fix this problem. https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/20...onto-harbour-water-monitoring-group-says.html
By the time the Special Weather Statement was issued a swath of 4 to 5 inches of rain had already fallen and the storm was drifting south. Part of the problem is that Environment Canada completely dropped the ball (and is worth prolly another thread as you would not believe how many times that happens), they also should issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning & Rainfall Warning but for some reason neglected to do so.
I have clipped the above comment from a previous post. So once again Mike Harris' fault? Or the voters of small town Ontario, that may not wish to fund Toronto's sewer system on top of major contributions to the TTC?
And as far as funding hospitals goes I thought that is why Mr McGuinty set up the health care levy in the early 2000's.
