Better late than never, I suppose.
“Despite his inflammatory word choice (“classist” would have been more accurate), many Torontonians realized Kinsella had a valid point. Tory later amended his transit plan to include the already planned Sheppard and Finch LRTs, which would serve those neighbourhoods.”
I stand by what I said: John Tory – he who belonged for years to a private golf course that didn’t admit Jews or minorities, and about which he did precisely nothing for years – had a transit plan that treated one part of the city more equally than others.
You can ask if that is divisive, or ask if it is impartial, or ask if it is segregationist. To me, it is was and is.
