This hilarious satire of the debate surrounding our mayor-elect’s transit plans was posted to YouTube by longtime Spacing Toronto commenter iSkyscraper. Nobody does deadpan better than a computer, n’est-ce pas?
“So you think that, despite everything I’ve just pointed out, a modern city should have a vision of removing streetcars? I guess Rob Ford is not only smarter than transit experts in Toronto, but in every city in North America?”
“Yes. Rob Ford does not like trains. He will stop them. He will stop the gravy trains.”
“I am not talking about gravy trains. I am talking about real trains.”
“He will stop the gravy train. And sell it for parts. To replace it with a bus. And new subways.”
UPDATE: iSkyscraper has created a follow-up video that provides a nice counterpoint to the original. Check it out:
