@dougford Mr Ford, next time you come into contact with John Tory, I wonder if ytou could ask him the following question. I bet he would just plain old lose it.
"Mr Tory, you plan to run SmartTrack along the same alignment as a residential neighbourhood and a condominium block now under construction. This means tunnelling. In view of the fact that TBM's are nearly free to use, but expensive to purchase, how is your plan, with fewer tunnels but necessitating TBM purchase, superior to mine, also requiring TBM purchase?"
And don't let off of him till you grind the man down.
