The entire purpose of this post is to hold comments dealing with possible alternate transit plans that were originally left in the thread “Why I’m Voting For George”. That thread is becoming polluted with issues that are far from the mayoral campaign, and I will move all related comments to this new stub.
A recent Globe and Mail report explains how the TTC poured cold water on Rob Ford’s proposal to phase out streetcars and eliminate the Transit City LRT lines. The details behind this article were posted on the City of Toronto’s website yesterday in the section dedicated to answering questions from candidates. (Other TTC-related questions appear first, and readers should scroll down to the heading “Present Transit City Plans & Commitments”.)
