I don't think I have ever heard the idea of "Transit Oriented Development" as a "PC" or "Conservative" core value, nor concern about housing. I mean this government has been doing TOD which is great, but I don't think the places in the world that have TOD have it because of fiscally and socially conservative politics. Also, unfortunately, no political walk of life is fully immune from bad eggs that don't prioritize transparency and fairness is government contracts and bidding to ensure no special relationship with "developer buddies" exists. However, some parties are typically pro large corporation, and others are typically more pro mom-and-pop or pro underdog than others.This is the PCs we're talking about. Part of their whole strategy is they want stations to be integrated with developments as a way to help with Toronto housing crises, make better use of the infrastructure being built (and if you like wearing tinfoil hats, to give favours to their "developer buddies"). Part of the reason this took a while is because they allegedly were trying to find suitable developers to build up the area first before they did anything. In terms of local connectivity, this station has always been a major focal point for Hamilton's transit network, including the terminus of the BLAST S line. So no, this isn't going to be anything close to Bloomington.
