Parkdale Res Assoc on the King St transit issue

Hello,

King Street is the busiest surface route in the city, moving over 70,000 passengers per day before the pilot project. Taking transit on King street was unpredictable and stress inducing. It was often faster to walk than take the streetcar.

The King Street Pilot was introduced in November 2017 to address these issues by restricting through traffic and left turns at most intersections to prioritize transit vehicles between Bathurst and Jarvis St, the most congested part of the street.

Residents, commuters, and businesses along the corridor have called the King Street Pilot“transformational” and look forward to working with the City to improve it.

The future of the King Street Pilot will be decided by City Council in the next three weeks. Do want them to make it permanent and make it even better?

Canadian Pacific appealing on the securement of trains on mountain grades after a train is stopped by an emergency brake application.

Canadian Pacific appeals Transport Canada order

Mar. 11, 2019 6:53 AM • SA Editor Clark Schultz

Canadian Pacific (NYSE:CP) announces that the company is appealing the Ministerial Order issued by Transport Canada last month on the securement of trains on mountain grades after a train is stopped by an emergency brake application.
“The application of handbrakes in accordance with the Ministerial Order introduces additional risks and will have unintended consequences,” says CEO Keith Creel. “We are seeking a review of the Ministerial Order because we firmly believe safer options are available and we must get this right,” he adds.
Canadian Pacific says it will comply with the Ministerial Order throughout the process.
The review of the Ministerial Order will be heard by the Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada.

I’m a parent, guerrilla geographer, National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Ordnance Survey Get Outside Champion, former geography teacher and am leading the campaign to make London the world’s first National Park City.

My work focuses on combining creative exploration, geography and communication to tackle social and environmental challenges. I’ve walked across all of the UK’s national parks and cities wearing a mind-reading device, walked the height of Mount Everest by only using London buildings, authored children’s books and completed 125 adventures around the country with my son.

I am currently working on a project to work with residents of a London neighbourhood to make their streets incredibly more green and wild. Later this year I will being doing a 100 metre nanoexpedition that will transform the way people think about Britain.
