I'm still waiting...

For Mayor David Miller to call for metal detectors at all subway stations...

"The TTC is wound into the very fabric of the city and the life of the city goes on the TTC as well," he said yesterday. "It's important to keep this in perspective. Toronto is a safe city, but there are incidents that occur from time to time."
"Incidents?" I guess that's one word.
Last year, a 21-year-old man was stabbed to death at Victoria Park subway station and a fare collector was killed there in 1995. In 2003, a 19-year-old was shot several times while waiting for a bus at the Kennedy subway station.
Oh yeah... I guess it doesn't count as TTC-related crime, if you actually walk out the door.

"A gang of 10 teenagers violently robbed scores of subway commuters yesterday afternoon during the peak of commuter rush hour."

We have to wait till Toronto turns into the NYC of the 80's before the population will elect a real mayor who can and will do something about it. Until that moment when we hit rock bottom, we just have to learn to live like this. And do like the New Yorkers did - take taxis everywhere.
