Duly Quoted: Doug Ford

“There is no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow for $2 billion to fund something else. This conception we’re getting a whole bunch of money if we go another way is just not facts.”

—Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North), rejecting any suggestion that council should revisit a scheme to completely bury the Eglinton LRT—a notion to which the cost-conscious Rob Ford is deeply committed, even though that will cost $1–2 billion more than the original plan (which called for putting the LRT at grade, or above ground, on eastern and western portions of the route where traffic is calmer and roads wider).
