The Ford government has taken over subway construction from the City of Toronto and is pumping billions into Toronto subway expansion, including adding underground stations to the Eglinton Crosstown west to Pearson Airport, extending the Yonge Line into Richmond Hill, adding three stops to the Danforth Line east to McCowan, and most importantly, doubling the length of the proposed Downtown Relief Line (DRL), which was originally to parallel the Yonge Line from Pape Station in the east to Osgoode downtown. Now the DRL will become the Ontario Line and run from the Science Centre at Eglinton to Ontario Place on Lake Ontario. What do you think of this plan? I’m all for massive subway expansion but I have questions. It’s a huge expense to extend the DRL from Queen St. to Ontario Place, which is currently a moribund site that will be rebuilt. What stations will be added west of Osgoode before the line reaches Ontario Place? We need to ensure that our subways serve communities and will have viable ridership. There will still be a Finch LRT, so at least Ford is open to different transit options. I hope that the Ontario Line at least runs as far west as Bathurst or even Trinity Bellwoods Park before heading south, as the Ontario Line would then really make some of the best areas of the city more accessible. What are your thoughts? https://www.google.ca/search?safe=strict&client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&source=hp&ei=SU2zXIiBF86D5wLilKOABw&q=ford+transit+plan&oq=Ford+tran&gs_l=mobile-gws-wiz-hp.1.3.0l3j0i131j0l4.3814.8174..11128...1.0..0.277.1135.5j3j1......0....1.......8..35i39j46i131j46.DwroFxbUk-w#
