Rob Ford’s Road to Nowhere

Brace yourselves, kids: Rob Ford has released his transportation plan [PDF]. Though we fully expect and look forward to multiple eviscerations of its details in the forthcoming days, in the interim let us just say that this is an astonishing bit of fiction which demonstrates little grasp of transit policy, government relations, or basic arithmetic. Released in conjunction with a bizarrely halting video, Ford’s key message seems to be: “I am going to take the nice $3.7 billion the province promised us for Transit City and instead use that money to build ten kilometres of subway.” Because, you know, the government of Ontario is totally happy to let Rob Ford reallocate its cash that way.
