Map of the Let’s Move transit plan, published as part of the Sheppard Subway Environmental Assessment, 1992.
Speaking of the Sheppard subway, it appeared well on its way to being part of Scarborough’s future at various points in time. Portions of the line were included in the Network 2011 plan of the mid-1980s, and Let’s Move in the early 1990s. Phase one should have been built to Victoria Park, but was pared back to Don Mills. Lobbying by North York Mayor Mel Lastman—who had opposed the proposed Scarborough transit line in the late 1970s—saved the remnant of the line from the fate Premier Mike Harris’s government dealt the Eglinton West subway, which was abruptly cancelled.
