    The NCC will be revealing the list of contenders who will be bidding to redevelop the site later on today.

    Montreal: New Baseball Stadium

    With the Jays playing a pre-season game in Montreal next year, there's been a lot more attention paid to one day returning baseball to Montreal. One of the biggest pre-conditions to an MLB return is a new stadium, since the Big O was, and would still be, the worst stadium in the MLB. So I...

    It looks like 2013 is shaping up to be a pretty substantial year for Metrolinx and for transit in the GTA.

    SRT Shutdown: How do we deal with it?

    So there has been a lot of talk about how to upgrade the SRT, but there has been very little talk about what to do during the 4 years that the SRT is going to be shut down. I put some thought into it, and I came up with a low-cost way to keep the replacement buses actually moving while...

    Poll: What Should The New Eglinton/Scarborough LRT/Metro Be Called?

    In light of the recent announcement to create a continuous line from Jane to Scarborough Town Centre (or even passed there, it's unclear if the SLRT extension is part of this proposal as well), I think it's time for a naming poll. EDIT: I have made the poll so that you can select multiple...
