We need to learn from Toronto, who are rethinking the wisdom of the Gardiner Expressway. Even the Mayor there has apparently reversed his position and wants to get rid of the elevated freeway. The whole Disraeli should be rethought in conjunction with a plan for Point Douglas. Do it once and do it right.
Chop Gardiner Expressway, Toronto Mayor Miller says - In a major turnaround, Mayor David Miller now says he supports removing a portion of the Gardiner Expressway to revitalize Toronto's waterfront. And he will probably have the votes to get it through city council, according to a prominent councillor not aligned with the mayor. Waterfront Toronto, the government agency that manages much of the city's lakefront, issued a news release last night saying it would outline plans today to tear down the Gardiner from Jarvis St. to the Don Valley Parkway.
