Unfortunately, Mike’s Love Doesn’t Fix Elevators

As you may remember, Michael Takasaki spent the better part of this past year photographing one broken automatic entrance to St. Clair station (“Let Mike’s Love Open The Door”), an entrance that was mercifully fixed shortly after our article was published (“Mike’s Love Opened The Door!”). As for the rest of the station—uh, not so much.
As Takasaki tells us, the doors are “working brilliantly,” but “the TTC never got around to finishing the job on the elevators. And they’ve actually taken a sharpie and crossed out the “late June” from the estimated completion date on all the signs in the station so it just reads “2007.”” And so the TTC continues its trend of little steps backwards as it continues to try to take big leaps forward
