Omission of the McCowan and Lawrence Station

"Stations can be built after the line is built, if they prep for it now - In the case of the McCowan and Lawrence Station, they need to dig the tunnel deep enough, and build the head-walls now - Unfortunately, I'm not sure that they will be doing either - I believe that part of the $1 billion savings gained by cancelling the Lawrence and the Sheppard subway stations includes the lower cost of building a shallower tunnel at West Highland Creek near McCowan and Lawrence, thus negating the possibility of ever building a future station there"
