Toronto: Mayor Ford shows ignorance on LRT





Mayor Rob Ford demonstrates limited knowledge of LRT and facts surrounding his own motion during LRT vs Subway debate at council on July 17, 2013.

 

Mayor made two errors: 1) called St. Clair an LRT (it is a streetcar, just like King, Queen, Spadina, etc), and 2) believed that "lanes will be ripped up" when the Scarborough LRT is on its own dedicated route, partially elevated, partially underground, and not sharing space with roads.

Council under the leadership of Rob Ford voted to spend $1.2B more on a subway - with only 3 stops - where the LRT serves more stops, has the same top speed of 80km/h, more advantages, and is referred to by TTC CEO Andy Byford as "subway like".
