Cellphone Service for the Underground TTC Network

The Government of Ontario, via Metrolinx and the TTC should sign an agreement with Canada's telecom providers, to get cellular and LTE services underground. This has been done in Montreal, so it is possible in Canada. All underground sections on the subway and streetcar network should be "wired", along with future network extensions like the Eglinton Crosstown LRT and the Scarborough Subway. While commuting, one can ...more »

Dedicated Transit Funding

We must have the courage to call for a 1% sales tax to be secured and dedicated to transit expansion.

DRL Now!

Make building a Downtown Relief Line Metrolinx's top priority. The Ontario government has been talking about how important it is for the last 30 years. If they think it's so important they should move it up on their list of priorities and provide some funding. The TTC is strapped for cash for expansion projects since the province cut it's funding for operating costs. It is up to the province of Ontario to find the money ...more »

End the Transit Debate

All parties: The Province, Metrolinx, Toronto, and the TTC need to sit down together and mediate the issues going on. One councillor or one minister should not have the right to derail an entire contract. Using transit to get votes is wrong and dirty politics and that is what we have been seeing with the scarborough subway. Ontario will never be a world class destination without it's major economic area having world class ...more »

Nix pointless subways

Sorry Scarborough, Sorry North York, but you don't have the demand for Subway lines.

 

We need to focus our resources on a DRL, and along Eglinton, and on more North-South capacity. No more pandering to voters with ideas for Subways that are as pointless as the Sheppard line.

Extend The TTC Subway Line

I think many people want the TTC Subway Line to be expanded. So why not? It's not very expensive and It brings a lot back to the community and Ontario as a whole including lowering the amount of money lost because, of lost productivity or grid lock. In the end it's a win-win situation.

Public Transit in Toronto

Why can't Toronto & Ontario agree to build rapid transit along existing rail corridors instead of ripping up roads & tunneling under buildings? Why not take the pressure off the downtown with a rapid transit line along the southern rail corridor, combining the money for Gardiner repair and transit building, utilizing the same corridor?

The Hearn Power Plant - Museum of Industry

Toronto only has one major museum (the ROM) dedicated to mainly antiqueties. It would be great to build a large industry (trains, planes, space, power generation, farming, factory, transit, etc.) museum in the heart of downtown Toronto. The Hearn Power Plant (the old coal plant) is in the heart of the port-lands, and is sitting unused and mostly gutted - used as a film set for the last few years. It is one of the largest ...more »
