[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links, from Lake Ontario flooding to Queen Street transit

  • The Globe and Mail describes how the flooding of Lake Ontario is starting to impact buildings built near the waterfront on the mainland, like some of Toronto’s new condos.
  • All of Toronto’s beaches will be, CBC reports, at least partly closed on account of the flooding until July.
  • Lucas Powers’ photo essay at CBC depicts the impact of flooding on the Toronto Islands.
  • Steve Munro continues his study of buses on Queen Street, noting that the frequency of buses needs to be increased to keep pace with streetcars.
  • Edward Keenan argues in the Toronto Star that Michael Ford’s call for a study for Queen Street transit will reveal that streetcars are the better way.
