Toronto Mayoral Race: Pantalone scores points at TCN debate

Pantalone, a supporter of the light rail Transit City plan, scoffed
at Ford’s transit plan, which includes two subway lines in Scarborough –
along Sheppard Avenue East and extending the Bloor-Danforth line, both
to the Scarborough Town Centre.

“My solution is Transit City,” Pantalone said. “Mr. Ford wants to
build 12 kilometres of subway. Transit City is 120 kilometres. He wants
to build the Sheppard and the SRT (Scarborough RT line), but he forgets
about Eglinton, he forgets about Finch. Mr. Ford’s plan is incomplete
and more expensive. The subway costs three times as much. All these
other plans are approved – and he wants to do more talking. As far as I
know, more talking doesn’t get us there from here.”
