Scarborough Subway is a bad idea!

I just read article in Toronto Star about the Scarborough subway. According to the article, half of Toronto voters support the subway.

The seven stop LRT can be built using a provincial contribution of $1.48 billion. The six kilometer one stop subway extension will cost $3.2 billion.

That means the taxpayers of Toronto will have to pay for the extra $1.72 billion.

Instead of spending $1.72 billion on the subway, why not use it for improving service on the TTC.

What good is the one extra subway stop if you have to travel in a subway without air conditioning, higher fares, service delays, service breakdowns, overcrowded buses and streetcars and long wait times.
