Canadian Urbanism Uncovered



  1. “Options still on the table, it says, are closing the Sheppard subway” says the Star – that’s funny, since the option in the leaflet doesn’t include that. Instead the option presented is terminating the 85 Sheppard West bus at Don Mills, so passengers between subway stops would have to walk to the nearest one.

    That said, it wouldn’t be the first time (motor vehicle tax) that the city presented a more palatable option in public consultation before imposing a less palatable one, especially since I imagine the developers like Daniels who have big investments on the Sheppard line are likely unhappy with one of their major selling points being yanked away.

    As for Minnan-Wong, do shut up. The TTC are doing (badly) what they should be doing, engaging the public. Minnan-Wong himself has dipped into his office fund for his propaganda website. The fact that they have spent 15 grand on a leaflet whose cover is less than engaging and panic inducing is another matter.

    That article on the Ont. NDP’s environmental position on coal plants and forestry is also interesting, this link might work for those without a Globe Insider account.

  2. As for Minnan-Wong, do shut up.

    I wish he’d just shut the fuck up. What a stupid cow.

  3. Anybody got the full text to the Globe articles?
