Are these the same friends of yours that are confident the Leafs have a chance at a 2nd round playoff spot?

He does have a point in that in the long term, the LRTs aren't a good replacement for subways;

Only in places that are projected to get incredibly dense. For example LRT would have been a great option instead of the Sheppard stubway. Subways aren't great for everything they're great just for dense areas. There was the TTC report that Ford suppressed that pointed out that in the 80s they thought that North York and Scarborough would become major job centers and thus would require subways for the amount of commuting that would happen. Well that turned out to be not the case.

An actual PLAN?

That's a bullshit plan though.

http://lrt.daxack.ca/LRTvsHRT/CostCompare.html

According to that 1 km of subway costs at best 270 million dollars. So with this brand new war on parking tax of 90 million per year we can lay track down at the speed of 1 km every 3 years.

Here was the subway plan from 1985:



That line that runs along the south that would connect at Danforth and again on Bloor West would be so fucking useful right now if they had built it!
A lot of people are really pushing hard for that Downtown Relief Line since it truly is the most necessary line for the city. It has the projected ridership to sustain it, plus it would help ease congestion on the Yonge line during rush hour.

More rebuking of the mayor from the province. They are making it crystal clear that Ford doesn't not have any wiggle room, that council is supreme, and that the job of the mayor is to achieve consensus. Excellent!

They were supposed to bring us together as a community, but ended up bringing us together as vandals. Now there's very few left, and the lobby of Yum! Brands in Vaughan has one dressed up as Colonel Sanders.

They were going to cancel the Sheppard line also but Mel saved it.

As soon as the Conservatives under Mike Harris won the 1995 election, the Eglinton West subway project was cancelled and the province dropped all capital funding of public transit. Sheppard was itself almost cancelled, but Mel Lastmanís lobbying saved the line.

Live blog of Ford(s)'s radio show, because no one actually wants to listen to this shit:

1:47 PM: “And now we’re going to take calls on any topic.” First call: “Chris” in Toronto, which is not me. Less-impressive-Chris wants to comment about a “huge disconnect” between councillors and citizens, and says her councillor is wonderful and goes to the Dufferin Mall every week. Chris wants to know why Rob called the council vote “irrelevant.” Rob explains that the Eglinton LRT is a provincial project and that people do not want to see another St. Clair and they want subways because everybody tells him they want subways and the St. Clair is a complete disaster and I’m wondering at this point if I should just create a macro for that. Nearly-as-impressive-as-me-Chris says “but hasn’t the Premier said he’ll follow the will of council” and Rob Ford says “no he hasn’t” and she says “yes he has, he did it last week” and Doug tries to jump in but she wants to speak with Rob, and Rob does his nervous giggle that he does when he has NOTHING and then he talks over her, saying she is an “LRT person” and gets her off the air quickly, because Rob Ford is a man of the people, except when the people disagree with him.

2:29 PM: More calls! Marianne in Toronto asks about the Sheppard subway plan and wants to know when we’ll see some sort of formal plan as to how it will be paid for. She also doesn’t agree with characterizing St. Clair as a disaster, and says that the new dedicated lane has cleared up. Rob Ford, in response, says he has to take a break. COURAGE, ROB FORD!

Maybe the radio station insisted on letting some dissenting views on the air since it would be better for ratings?
