Says who? Not the people of Toronto. An election is not a referendum. If Mayor Ford had incorporated a tangible, well-thought-out transit platform into his campaign, perhaps this would be a fairer statement. But the only mode of transit Ford favoured during the election was the car. Oh, and a train loaded with gravy.

Beautifully put.

I wish more people would understand that (especially in a modern world, nobody seems to want to say anything 'on the record'...and then stand by it) being elected is not the same as having something specific confirmed by way of a referendum. Anyone who insists that it is, is either woefully naïve, or a political player.

Thanks for this article.
