Um, when David Miller was reelected in 2006, people at the time were saying that the election was a referendum on whether to build more subways or pursue light-rail. Jane Pitfield was pro-subway. How can the very same people now be critical of Ford's stance? Although subway advocates get nowhere near as much news coverage as light-rail proponents such as Steve Munro, we've been silently grinding our teeth all these years since Transit City was proposed in hopes that someone with enough political clout would come along to stop this. Subways work, they benefit the entire city because one can incorporate a line relatively easy into their daily commute. The Sheppard subway will be a godsend for making crosstown trips north of the 401. I can only hope that in the future they'll extend Sheppard subway even further west and east into Rexdale and Malvern.
