"The cost of building a subway to LRT transitional station at Don Mills and Sheppard is almost $1B more than retrofitting the existing station for a new subway extension" - "I don't believe this was taken into account when comparing the difference in cost of LRT versus Subway for the Sheppard Avenue East"

"LRT supporters conveniently omit the fact that it will cost almost $1 billion more for a subway to LRT transitional station at Don Mills"
