Given the recent uproar over Toronto transit, with council’s right arguing vehemently against any proposal that didn’t involve privileging subways above all else, imagine our surprise upon reading a June 2009 letter from Giorgio Mammoliti that championed light rail for Finch Avenue (according to Mammoliti, LRT would “provide several improvements for Emery Village”). Of course, Mammoliti has changed his tune since then—he’s now arguing the exact opposite. Council’s most entertaining mouthpiece is many things, but consistent clearly isn’t one of them. (h/t Reddit)
