T.O.'s Expo bid, the Metropass, the suburbs

Crossposted to Spacing’s Wire.

A few links to articles in the Toronto Star today:

With the city set to decide late next month whether to back a bid for the Expo 2015 world’s fair, Toronto could soon be searching, yet again, for an international extravaganza to kick-start its port lands development.

Christopher Hume in the Star today: Say what you like about suburbia, sneer at it all you want, but the truth is it’s here to stay.Maybe that’s not the way it should be, but that’s the way it is, especially here in North America, where gas is still (relatively) cheap and land in plentiful supply.

The Toronto Transit Commission considered eliminating the word “Metro” from its monthly pass, until learning that more people associate “Metropass” with the transit system than they do “The Red Rocket.”
