Recent news from the Mayor, his brother Doug, and other supporters shows that “compromise” is the last word on their mind when it comes to transit planning. In quick succession, recent days brought us proposals for new taxes and fees, development charges, a casino, a lottery and even a new set of toll expressways to allow Doug to get downtown without congestion. Each of these schemes has been more outrageous, ill-considered, hare-brained and short-lived as its predecessor. Clearly, the Fords’ policy brains-trust is spinning out of control in a desperate attempt to find any way to bring credibility to a Sheppard Subway funding plan.
Best news of the evening, and that includes the ouster of Ron Wilson: Steve is now on Twitter as @SwanBoatSteve.
