Please do NOT use the turnback terminal operations as used in Line 1 and Line 2. We've seen trains having to wait before entering the terminal station.
Just bad practice/timekeeping - Brixton on the Victoria line in London shows how 30tph+ can be achieved with the turnback terminal operations you describe.
As the Ontario Line will use Unattended Train Operation, they should be okay.

City:
Toronto
Also, Gerard-Carlaw has been dropped as a Smart Track Station (I believe it could have interchanged with the OL station?)
That came out in one of the Metrolinx public Ontario Line meetings ... which must have been a year or more ago, as there haven't been any in-person meetings for almost a year!

Apparently Metrolinx has started expropriating the lands for Corktown station. From the city, which is a little weird, but what about this project isn't?

So as far as ive heard there was a deal between the city and the province for the province to give back the land to the city for a libray or something once the Ontario line was complete. guess Metrolinx must have changed their minds and need full control of the area.
This is the area in question

A deal with the Government of Ontario isn't worth the paper its printed on :)

This is without question one of the most historical sites in Canada. Period. I want to hear how the Province plans to deal with the historical artifacts on the site, and how they plan to utilize the site after construction is complete. Using this as the site for transportation facilities, without any regard for its historical nature, is an unacceptable solution.

What are you expecting they'll find? A 200 year old rotting piece of wood they'll deem historically part of the old parliament? Surely they'll have to dig it up. If they do find a buried building or tools, sure they should carefully examine it. If nothing comes up, they should just do business as usual. We don't have Romans conquering this land from 2000 years ago.
