Scarborough Transit Gloria Monday Friday

Let me clarify a bit.  I say I’m from LEAFS SUCK – and while it’s certainly where I was raised (Riverdale – now called Leslieville) – I actually live in Scarberia.  I’ve got a ton to say about the dysfunctional relationship between Scarborough and “Toronto Proper”, but that’s another post, which you’ll probably have to wait weeks for.

Anyways, as I’ve mentioned before, LEAFS SUCK is having some drama about transit and municipal governance.  It’s all really small-town-gossipy-that’s-what-she-said-ish except that we’re talking about projects totalling somewhere in the nine billion dollar range.

If you’re curious about what went down, I suggest reading Steve Munro or Hamutal Dotan for their takes on it.  Shortered history – once elected our wingnut Mayor “killed” a long term transit plan called Transit City and now two years later City Council has endorsed and committed the city to a long term transit plan that is in almost every respect – Transit City.

Anywho, all these transit goings on has got me thinking and maybe there's a post bouncing around about built forms and urban planning and regional transit integration and such.  Certainly teh voices keep whispering stuff at me.  Also too, Scarberia and all that entails.  But for now, I'm just enjoying teh defeat of teh defenders in teh War on Cars.

Credit is due to Rob Ford for coming up with a transit plan, says some PR person I am dreaming up.

Use caution, DKW. Once you start listening to the voices, you find yourself on a slippery slop wearing banana peel shoes.

I will be in LEAFS SUCK next week. Point out the offenders, and they brains will be eaten.

Hey zrm, hope you enjoy(ed) your stay. Uh, yeah - I do check this place a bit too infrequently.

We had to entertain ourselves. Fortunately, everything was conveniently named Gretzky.

And yeah, the LEAFS do indeed SUCK, do they not? I've never seen a coach that had to write a written apology before. Probably got detention too.
