SmartTrack is destine to the waste bin of other discarded transit ideas. The problem isn't his lacklustre or piecemeal ideas, but the fact that any bold, ambitious, or visionary plan always requires large and stable amounts of funding. Other cities have the power to tax gasoline or impose road tolls and other sources to fund transit projects, but in Ontario we're subject to the whims of who's in Queens Park to hopefully give us funding to fund any projects with the hopes that they don't cut and run like the Harris government did in the 90's. If Toronto ever wants to move forward it needs the power to generate it own tax revenue funding without Queens Park interfering.
Is there a Transit Authority that doesn't operate at the whim of it's State/Provincial authority?
