Really? It's pretty consistant to me. It's not Montreal with its never changing logo, but it's largely just minor variations over time of the same theme.

I've never liked the TTC logo. I get it predates modern wayfinding needs, but Montreals is much better in identifying the subway. More than just the logo, I find the general ttc brand rather weak.

The TTC has had the same logo for almost as long as it's been in operation. It's highly identifiable and I for one love the retro design.

I love the TTC logo. I hope it never changes. Note that TTC was just today named the best transit agency in North America for 2017.

I have mixed feelings to say the least about London Transit Commission's logo.

A bit bias but I quite like the CSJ logo as well. Been around for about a decade now:


CSJ

I've also always enjoyed the TTC logo for its longevity and history. Something about consistent logos over decades and decades pleases me. Nothing's more annoying than a rebrand followed by a rebrand followed by a rebrand.

1920s and 1930s Leafs logo reminds me of a very fat scarecrow... set in a position like it's doing jumping jacks.


I prefer the newer versions (late 1930s and newer) of the textured leaf (I kinda like the clean 1970s-1990s version, too. They're different.)

I always like this Alberta Wheat Pool logo, even painted a few back in the 70-80's...

The new Alberta logo above is pretty awful. Reminds me a bit of the re-design of the Ontario Trillium logo in the early 2000s.

I quite like the old one:




The new one is basically 3 people in a hot tub:




I give it a couple years before a re-design that will end up being far more similar to the original.

now this is a good logo (sorry, American, but people in SW Ontario might like it, and besides, Gordie Howe...)
