Explaining different modes of transit in the G.T.A; removing political spin and disinformation
Found a great article on transit through “What happens to public opinion when LRT is explained”. It is a great piece, which is quite informative. Take some time to read the article. Cherise Burda takes to time to explain the differences between subways, light rail, GO Trains, rapid bus and right-of-way streetcar modes of transit.

Rocco Rossi will not have to keep his promise to kill Transit City. Dalton and the Liberals may have done it for him? Is this one of the “dumbest decisions ever made?” The government seems to be following in the footsteps of its predescesors and the Mike Harris Progressive Conservatives, when similar projects were ended without understanding the long-term investment in Transit for a viable city. What do you think? Who is fighting for Toronto and the G.T.A?

As a part of the Thursday’s provincial budget the McGuinty government announced a belt-tightening of $4 billion over five years that will derail the expansion of public transit projects, essentially cutting Mayor David Miller’s Transit City funding by half.
In a press conference in his city hall office, a seething Miller says he’s “beyond disappointed” by the cuts.
Miller says this is unacceptable to him and it should be to the people of Toronto.
“You don’t balance budget’s by stopping building the future–that’s the job of the government”
Liberal budget swipes away Transit City funding
Should we now reallocate funding for Transit City?
