    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I mean you could make the same argument about any sport or activity. Why would anyone want to watch people hit/throw/kick a ball around, etc...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I only read three pages back, so not sure if this has been noted before... but there's a golf course on Kennedy, maybe that could be a potential yard location. Probably expensive but anywhere else would be too?

    Land Acknowledgements and Reconciling Our Settler History

    I'm not really sure how I feel about land acknowledgements, but they don't really bother me in moderation. I think that they (or things like them) can have a place in large public gatherings that attract a crowd that does not come regularly (ex. Grey Cup, Olympics), or maybe at the first of a...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    That's interesting. I wasn't riding at the absolute peak hours this school year, but I've noticed that I have hardly ever seen the subway as busy as it was before. Mind you, there have been some packed streetcars and buses depending on the time Edit: haven't taken the subway since April so I...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Personally I think that any extensions, especially west until Sheppard west, should be subway. I think that a high volume, fast crosstown route will eventually prove useful, and it would be silly not to take full advantage of the subway that's already there. It doesn't necessarily need to be...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    I used to be heavily in favour of grade separating the west, and wrote that down in the consultation, but have since mellowed. However, I had thought that the chief advantage of this corridor was that it was basically just sitting there vacant and only needed to be a trench (kind of like Calgary...

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    Which is kind of a problem, does timmins have transit at midnight? I wonder about north bay too, nobody lives near the train station and the train will get there at like 5 am or midnight. I forgot how early/late their busses run but hopefully people can actually get there. There's also...

    Toronto Park Lawn GO Station | 12.83m | 2s | First Capital | Hatch

    Honest question, what is the point of this station? I get that there's buildings here, but there's already a GO station that's way too close to it, it slows down the whole commuter rail system, and it just adds as option for people to pay two fares instead of one. I live at long branch and I...

    VIA Rail

    Well I mean the siemens cars are already in delivery. If VIA had been in procurement or had just awarded the contract it could have been an idea (not taking any technical specifications into account) but at this point it would be a waste of, well, everything.

    GO Transit Midtown Corridor

    I mean that some of this line was to be part of VIA's HFR (to Peterborough and beyond) so it could have potential for that. That being said, aside from the fact that it's slightly too close to the Bloor line, the idea in itself isn't terrible. I'm not sure how far west the line goes, but I...

    GO Transit Midtown Corridor

    Unfortunate that he left out the whole VIA situation, as it's somewhat relevant for this line.

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    The important question is: where is Cinnabon?

    I don't think so, it's a slightly different colour.

    Toronto CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    They get big too. They might have to take that into account when designing the structure.

    Toronto CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    I think it's silly that they don't plant more evergreens. the place will look depressing as heck in the winter. That said, White Pines are my all-time favourite trees (can you tell? lol), but they don't get quite as tall when one tree is planted alone, so hopefully they're smart about it...

    University Avenue (History and Future Redesign)

    I don't like how there are no coniferous trees in the render. I get that they don't give much shade, but it might help make it a bit less dismal in the winter.
