I agree that Bratina has squandered his authority on this file, and it's shameful that he feels entitled to conduct secret meetings on the matter. On the bright? side, Toronto politics has taught us that no matter what happens in one term, long-laid transit plans can shift quickly on the winds of political whim. We'll certainly revisit this after the new mayor takes office.

In Bob's limited defense, this part: "LRT service on the B-line corridor would actually be less frequent than what is now in place." is probably true. LRT vehicles are much bigger. If we're going to realize the operational cost savings of LRT, it will mean running few vehicles, each holding more passengers than the current system of #10/1/5x busses. I don't think waiting a few more minutes for a more comfortable vehicle will be a severe burden though, and it the impact will be reduced through the elimination of redundant routes.
