DRL has a pretty large consensus, especially when you add Relief Long. The rest of the city isn't blind to the necessity of the Relief Line and it's potential benefits to the entire network. The lack of Relief Line is hurting EVERYONE, including me at Don Mills & Sheppard where I pretty much almost gave up on the Yonge Line and Uber pool back and forth when I need to get downtown.What suicide? You mean the ridings that won't vote for them in 2018, won't vote for them in 2022?
Ask yourself a simple question. How many ridings would flip PC if they built the DRL? Alternatively, if they spent that money on HSR to London or Yonge North, how many ridings would flip PC? There's your answer on what will be getting built.
You'd be right if we were talking Waterfront LRT but Relief Line helps everyone.
