    It doesn't matter if you think it's a bad idea or not. City Council voted to do it, and hired all the contractors to begin the work.

    Ford's scant supporters continue to claim that he has saved the city money, but it's simply not true. He has squandered hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts that were for projects that would have renewed infrastructure and increased economic activity. Now Toronto is more in debt but with nothing to show for it.

    It would have cost even more to build them. And now it would not have renewed infrastructure it would have cost hundreds of millions of more in lost productivity from traffic jams etc. the construction of such a stupid idea would have entailed.
    Killing the trams whatever the cost saved Toronto a crap load of money in the long run.
    Thank god they aren't billions more in debt because of the Trams. Even a drunken crack head can get something right from time to time.
