Procedural manoeuvring, long-winded oration and a mayor largely lurking in the shadows while the fate of perhaps his biggest political file hung in the balance, yesterday’s Sheppard subway debate had it all. So much so, it lapped over into a day 2.
It still appears as if Mayor Ford won’t seal the deal. If I was reading the signs correctly, what they are realistically angling for is to maybe, hopefully, fingers crossed, just swing one or two votes back their way in order to lose a close vote and thereby declare another irrelevancy and continue beating the anti-LRT drum.
So, off we go again, the city’s immediate transit future unsettled, the mayor’s subway dream/nightmare not yet dead.
