Extra, Extra: Olivia Chow’s Bus Plan, Liberal Infighting, and the TTC’s Changing Signs

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.

TTC 1 After

  • Mayoral candidate Olivia Chow thinks the TTC should increase service by 10 per cent on its busiest bus routes. This is obviously a shocking transit proposal—in that it involves neither subways nor LRT.
  • Meanwhile, in Olivia Chow’s former riding of Trinity-Spadina…politicians are preparing for the byelection her resignation has brought about. And by “preparing,” we mean “busy fighting amongst themselves”—the riding’s Liberal executive members have condemned Justin Trudeau’s decision to prevent Christine Innes from running. CP24 notes that “Trudeau this week defended the move as necessary to demonstrate that party infighting will no longer be tolerated.”
  • The TTC has been testing out new signage at Yonge and Bloor. Spacing explains why the transit system’s updated approach to wayfinding might be a pretty good thing, and takes us on a tour of the TTC’s signage history along the way.
