    Land Acknowledgements and Reconciling Our Settler History

    I cannot speak for all school boards but at least in YCDSB, students are expected to stand quietly while land acknowledgments are read over the PA in the mornings every day Monday-Firday. The acknowledgments were introduced last year and they were read weekly. To me, it seems very hypocritical...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Although questionable, I could see someone argue for phase 2, but phase 3? How? Why? What?

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    assuming they go through with the dufferin to mccowan, I predict something like: Sheppard west-bathurst- current stations- VP/consumers - Warden - Agincourt Mall betwwen birchmount and kennedy - agincourt Go- Mccowan

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Orange is fine, it's a missing link in the system between Blue, Yellow, and Green. The even more pertinent question is why finch is grey?

    Toronto Toronto | YNSE: Cummer/Drewry Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    The Yonge North Extension to richmond hill has been under consideration for at least 20 years. The Province is almost completley funding the extension, so you have no real way of rationalizaing your statment of Toronto getting on its knees for north of steeles. The extension will create several...

    Toronto Toronto | YNSE: Cummer/Drewry Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    TORONTO transit is not paying for this station. simple as that. This extension is a metrolinx project, and TOC proceeds will offset the costs for Royal Orchard Station. If you so desperately want TORONTO transit to stop "getting on its knees for anything north of Steeles" maybe try and email...

    One of the North York Stations of Lawrence, Don Mills, Bayview, or York Mills.

    Richmond Hill Toronto | Yonge North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    That is simply not true I don't know what else to tell you, the density of high-tech will absolutely exceed the planned density of Yonge and cummer that is not walking distance to finch station and steeles station. Aside from that, high tech will become a major transit hub because of the highway...

    Richmond Hill Toronto | Yonge North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    well yes, cummer has more density today, but not enough to justify a subway station, which is why we are speaking about potential ridership. There are around 10 years until the YNSE is complete, and until then, the slight density that cummer has over high-tech is not important. The projected...

    Richmond Hill Toronto | Yonge North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I don't think the ask is egregious, but rather the claim that the station is far more justified than any of the stations in York region in terms of ridership potential. I am all for cummer station, but really? More justified than a "denser than Hong Kong" High-tech/bridge station, even when...

    That would be amazing, and maybe even a downtown markham model as well

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    I don't agree that Kipling has the density or the demand to be worth a rapid transit line. I do agree that a diagonal Weston Road alignment until Mount Dennis and North on Jane from there could work, But another routing I could see is one along Highway 27 from Long Branch to Humber College. I...

    Toronto Toronto | 5951 Steeles East | 13.73m | 1s | The Jim Pattison Group | Ware Malcomb Architecture

    The Lesso Mall sign that has been on this vacant land for what seemed like over 20 years, is now gone.😢 The plot was recently sold to Jim Pattinson who will build a 400,000 sq ft warehouse and distribution center. Everyone in the area desired/anticipated a new mall or housing, or both, for this...

    VIVA + York Region Transit

    I understand it looks bad, but Route 25 went from every 34 minutes at its best, to now every 24 minutes. Quite a substantial improvement. I couldn't tell how frequent it was during the other periods, but I am sure it has gotten a lot more frequent during all periods.

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    No, and when I speak of the "failure", I am not solely referring to this particular instance, but rather the SRT as a whole, and I am defending Bill Davis' imposition of the SRT. The person I was responding to is implying Davis is to blame for this somehow, and they claim that we should be...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    this is such a reach, lol. Not only was there nothing inherently wrong with building the SRT as the failure came from the negligence of maintaining or upgrading, but trying to link these two proposals together solely by political affiliation is outright disingenuous.
