    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    The problem is, driving in this city is such a slog now, and people are watching others break the rules, and instead of facing consequences, get rewarded for it by getting ahead. This normalizes the behaviour, and its "the norm" now to not stop at stop signs, drive up onto the crosswalk while...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I've seen signs which talk about temporary road fixes (which, are desperately needed) starting this fall and going to next spring. So, my guess is, still a long time before implementation.

    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    I voted for Matlow as well, but, realistically, the chance of a different outcome were almost non-existent, since Ford can just completely override any municipal rules he doesn't like anyways. While I would greatly prefer the Gardiner to be torn down, and I hate that we'll be seeing a monument...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Given the usage of the system, it seems like it should be near the top priority of the TTC given that new lines are being funded by Metrolinx. This would by far have impact on the most people.

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Oh I agree Jagmeet needs to go, he is no Jack, and the NDP has been pathetic, but even so, all options are pathetic, and in many cases worse. It would also be harder to get rid of Jagmeet if the NDP are second place. They would likely try him out for another election before turfing. Also, being...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    The problem is, the NDP does not have any chance of winning the next election, and forcing the election now will just guarantee worse outcomes for the programs and groups they support. At least the libs usually give a small figleaf for NDP priorities. They really have nothing to gain by forcing...

    Toronto Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport | ?m | ?s | Ports Toronto | Arup

    Maybe we just make it into a spaceport instead. :cool: Seriously though, while I like the idea of getting rid of the airport and replacing it with a park or cultural institution in theory, in reality, if this were to happen, it would become Spa 2.0, a Casino, or some other kind of make-a-buck...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    I wonder if they're delusional enough to think that the conservatives won't change housing much, people will have a re-awakening and this will bring in a Trudeau redux, just like his dad.

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    3 years is an eternity in politics, and Doug is actually lucky these scandals came out now. If no more scandals come out, and the economy improves, I can see him winning re-election again, unfortunately.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    It would make their trip to the airport between 10 and 40 minutes longer. (I estimated about 5 min to Mt Dennis), then max of 15 min wait for each train.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    Why is there this preoccupation with extending the Ontario Line to Pearson, via Richmond Hill no less? I've seen it said casually on this thread many times, but it sounds like an operational nightmare. Which direction do I need to go of I'm @ King and Bathurst to go to Pearson? Can we have...

    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    The zealots are going to make this an issue regardless. There is no placating them. Giving in only emboldens them since they think they are winning.

    Toronto Toronto | Ontario Place | ?m | ?s | Infrastructure Ontar

    People complain about it all of the time, you just choose to ignore it. All political parties do this, and it's horrible, and there's probably not much difference between the conservatives and liberals in this matter.

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    Oddly enough, I have a feeling quite a few people along Jane will take Crosstown, since until the extension opens, the buses will be doing a 5 min detour to Mt Dennis. My guess is, time from Mt Dennis to, say, St George station will have a 10-15 min savings over the bus/line2. The East side...

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    This is not an easy question to answer. While in general, iOS is indeed more secure than Android devices, especially given how many of them are out there with various unpatched operating systems, there is one thing that iOS has going against it. In general, iOS users are much more likely to be...

    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    It's because the true purpose of keeping these arcane restrictions over the years is to give plausible deniability to the city when they wanted to remove some "undesirable" from the park. That's usually the case whenever you have rules that are selectively applied.

    Road Safety & Vision Zero Plan

    It's OK. When they install roundabouts here, they'll just add stop signs to make people feel more comfortable. 🤮

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Nah, it's much easier to extend a line than build a new one, so of course it would of had an extension. Line 4 almost had extensions done, even though there are like 20 more important transit priorities in Toronto. The only thing that would have made it a longer wait is the building of the...

    Mayor Olivia Chow's Toronto

    Would a 25% tax increase even get us to the point of balancing our current budget given the feds and province don't seem like they want to help all that much? Let alone adding any services. Interesting times are certainly coming.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The malice is in the planning. Adding additional lanes is a solution to a problem created by poor planning. Innisfil and Bowmanville should have good transit coverage for you when you get off the train, for example. Obviously that does not exist, and would take a complete 180 and rethink how we...
