GUEST – Steve Munro, Transit Guru
TOPIC – Scarborough transit
INFO – Will Scarborough Get A Subway?
May 2013 saw Toronto Council, in a fit of almost unprecedented irresponsibility, reverse its previous support for a Master Agreement with Metrolinx for the construction of four LRT lines. Instead, Council decided that it preferred that a subway replace the Scarborough RT rather than a new LRT line.
