Gridlocked: how incompetence, pandering and baffling inertia have kept Toronto stuck in traffic

Some good examples of transit/road boondoggles in the T-dot – completely torpedoed by the inclusion of the Spadina Expressway with Jane Jacobs as a villain (because she set a precedent for politicians to ignore planners). Really? It would have been better to bulldoze Forest Hill, the Annex, Chinatown, Kensington and Queen West? To follow disgraced planning theory from the 50s that everyone now knows was disastrous? Just so some commuters wouldn’t have to wait to turn off the Allen Road? Toronto Life: again with the trolling.
