"A three-stop extension to the Bloor-Danforth subway will provide a greater benefit to Scarborough than SmartTrack - SmartTrack will actually slow GO RER down with its extra stops - A subway will provide a better foundation for future transit improvements - A 3-stop subway is justified if SmartTrack is cancelled - The $4 billion saved by cancelling SmartTrack East will cover the extra two stops and the overrun on the 3-stop subway as well as the overrun on the Crosstown East LRT and would leave $1 billion to put towards the proposed Relief Line"
