Sorry, gridlock is unfixable

Which political candidates are lying when they promise to ease congestion on Toronto’s roads? All of them.
Sitting in traffic sucks. And Statistics Canada tells us that we do a lot of it. The average Toronto auto commuter spends an hour driving to and from work. So it’s no mystery why pretty much all of the mayoral candidates—and the provincial parties, too—are pitching solutions to traffic congestion in the GTA. A new subway relief line, improved bus service, getting streetcars off the roads, introducing higher-tech traffic signals, rebuilding the Gardiner… the list gets longer every day. But the hard truth is that none of these ideas will reduce traffic congestion. At all.

About Me

I lean to the right but I still have a heart and if I have a mission it is to respond to attacks on people not available to protect themselves and to point out the hypocrisy of the left at every opportunity.MY MAJOR GOAL IS HIGHLIGHT THE HYPOCRISY AND STUPIDITY OF THE LEFTISTS ON TORONTO CITY COUNCIL. Last word: In the final analysis this blog is a relief valve for my rants/raves.
