    It's absolutely hilarious they don't think the train yard should go there. It's literally the PERFECT place for it. People are nuts.

    What's the latest with the Apple store? Are they still saying they're out and The One is suing them to stay?

    It's so nuts to me that Porsche dealership is being torn down. It's barely a decade old and was just completely renovated inside. So crazy. Always think of old buidlings getting torn down, not brand new ones.

    I don't see a lot of drivers blowing through red lights and stop signs full speed like cyclists do. I don't see a lot of drivers blasting down the sidewalk like cyclists do. I don't see a lot of drivers going the wrong way down one way streets and blowing stop signs and then hoping up onto the...

    Simply put because cycling doesn't work for everyone all the time. I love cycling, but it works best when you're by yourself and don't have much to carry. Have a young family? Probably aren't all going out on bicycles. Especially if they're so young they can't even ride bikes. Have elderly...

    Don't agree at all. Downtown we've had roads everywhere reduced to just one car lane each way to allow for bicycle or multi-use lanes. Examples like Bayview Extension, Dundas, Canary District, Eastern to name a tiny fraction. Speed bumps everywhere. CafeTO. Cyclists exempt from traffic laws...

    Surely you want to be further west than Dufferin if you're going to do a Lake to 401 subway of that scale? I mean you're barely a few streets over from the University line. Run it up Keele/Weston Road or run it up Royal York if you want to be properly inclusive. Dufferin?

    I'm sure this is way too early, but are there any renderings of the trains? I assume it's not the same as on the Eglinton LRT line or are they?

    It's going to be exciting to see two relatively MASSIVE new bridges being built across the Don Valley. Curious if there are any designs yet? Wonder if they'll be concrete or steel? These are going to be huge and high. Won't look great having to be right next to existing bridges, but so be it. .

    I rode my bicycle over to check it out today and... wow. The amount of demolition happening at Parliament and Front for the Corktown Station is wild. Like two and a quarter entire city blocks full of buildings are getting ripped down. Clearly they don't need that much space for just the...

    Great article on the area. Doomed! https://www.thestar.com/opinion/star-columnists/2022/02/28/the-ballad-of-yonge-and-bloor-locked-doors-and-empty-stores.html

    I'm not expert but those look like propane flames rather than wood flames.

    Forget about slaves, I wonder if ancient engineers could build more impressive structures than today's engineers if you gave them access to modern day materials and building techniques. Do they have bigger imaginations and creativity? Like if we're impressed 3,000 years later with what they...

    What about the Michael Lee Chin Crystal at the ROM. That's pretty iconic at a very important location.

    Well it's gone. :( They tore it down early this morning.
