TTC Jane St service by electrically-powered light rail vehicles?

A reader sent in this link Proposed Jane Street Light Rail Transit (LRT) which details a City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission proposal to replace  the bus service on Jane Street, from Bloor Street West to Steeles Avenue West with fully accessible, modern electrically-powered light rail vehicles operating in dedicated transit lanes, separated from the normal traffic.

This city question and answer PDF has a lot of details answers to questions about this great proposal, such as- what local benefits will there be?… and more.

Two  Open Houses are planned  (one for tonight).

The Jane LRT line could make a few changes to the Junction landscape.

An alternative termination point at Dundas West is being considered and would more than likely run down the Weston rail corridor and stop St. Clair and Annette.

I’m sure we’ll see a few interesting discussions about this over the next year or so.
