QUOTED: Normally conciliatory transit expert Eric Miller takes aim at Rob Ford
When you actually look at the facts, instead of just dismissing everything as hogwash that you don’t agree with, LRT is the best solution in this corridor.
–Eric Miller, University of Toronto transit expert and member of Rob Ford’s most hated transit panel, with an unequivocal boost for light rail on Sheppard and a sideways jab at the mayor. Miller (who in the past has been diplomatic about Ford’s subway scheme) struck out at Ford for calling the group of experts “biased” and recommending that council ignore their findings. Miller went on, “The mayor recognizes that he can’t win this discussion on the basis of the facts, on the merits of the case, ’cause they aren’t there. So the strategy is then to sling mud and to denigrate the work of the panel.” [Metro Morning]
