On Monday, December 6, CBC’s Metro Morning included a piece by Mary Wiens about the problems of commuting through the suburbs, and the hopes of folks on Sheppard (and by implication many other places) for a subway network some day.
In reply to this, I sent a note to Mary talking about some of the issues and misunderstandings, and my sadness at the degree to which people who think they voted for subways have been misled. Metro Morning liked the piece enough they asked me to record it, and it aired on December 7. As I write this, the podcast version is not on the CBC’s website, and so I have placed a copy on my own site. When the podcast goes up, I will switch the link to use the CBC’s version.
