Lunatics keep on track

As if to accentuate the lunacy that prevails at city hall and the TTC, the transit experts who can’t schedule buses are asking city council to approve killing the retailers unlucky enough to be located on King Street between Parliament and Spadina. The idea is to frustrate drivers so much that they’ll take the streetcars instead of trying to drive.

But the retailers on King depend a great deal on auto traffic for business and they’re unlikely to get much from sweating passengers crammed into streetcars lined up after each other.
