—The reliably voluble Doug Ford earlier today, expressing frustration with his fellow primates councillors as the Sheppard Avenue transit debate stretches on (he later apologized). Rob Ford also spoke up during day two of the meeting with a familiar refrain: “People want subways folks…subways, subways. They don’t want these damn streetcars blocking up our city!” We’re expecting a few more speeches (and outbursts) this afternoon and—fingers crossed—a vote. [Torontoist]
