  1. I find Marcus Gee’s piece to be very interesting. He manages to assign all the blame for Toronto’s transit problems to city council, essentially giving a pass to the generations of provincial politicians who have basically taken every opportunity to screw things up.

    It is remarkable that McGuinty has, for the most part, managed to avoid criticism on transit, considering the number of indignities that have occurred under his tenure (the Sorbara subway extension, cutting Transit City’s original funding promise, and signing on to Ford’s illegal MOU among them).
