Who would that be, then?

Why, DNDn't you hear about the massive government department taking over the Nortel Campus?

(The Department of National Defence)
Not closely following real estate updates half a province away, no.

Makes me wonder if the DRDC-Toronto campus was one of the reasons the Downsview extension was put on the TTC...
I suspect not.
The DND Carling Campus is going to house literally thousands of workers. That facility in Toronto would have a couple hundred, at best.

This would seem to imply that it was a case of it being the cheapest thing they could do that would fit in to the future network plans (1. incremental York extension, and 2. connect with the Sheppard Subway)
I like the slide where they list all the LRT projects in Ontario. Except ours.
I like this render, showing the flyover for the Moodie/Baseline split.


Though they seem to be having some bunching issues on the line already! Big Grin Tongue Rolleyes
Also the wrong vehicles.
...and also the wrong headways!

Copper thieves targeting the municipal rail system is a new one for OC Transpo.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
System is coming along nicely since my last visit... looking forward to 2018 when I can step off the VIA train and take the LRT right to my downtown hotel!

I don't see what part between windows isn't painted black?

Or are you talking about the connection between the front window and the side windows?
The photo we can see is one that Canard has presumably photoshopped. Check the photo that mayor Watson actually posted to see the difference.

Oh, got it.

Yeah, much better Canard's way.
