Thank you for reply. This is what many don't realize: The TTC, Metrolinx and many Cdn agencies hide information that is freely available in other nations, even the US, even though Canada and provinces claim to make the information available. Accountability and 'Open Access' is a theory.
You're absolutely right on all counts.
I am, however, not going to be the one to put my friend's career at risk by trying to push it out into the public now. When he's good and ready, sure. But not sooner than that.
