Scarborough - LRT vs Subway

"This is just one poll from 2014 - Obviously things have changed somewhat, but I'm not too far off:

“The majority of Torontonians say a 7-stop light rail transit option for Scarborough is a much better choice than building a 3-stop subway, according to a new poll released on transit issues - Of those polled, 51 per cent support the LRT while only 40 per cent would opt for the subway, if costs for building both were the same, however; the numbers are flipped when just Scarborough residents were asked with 56 per cent supporting the underground option and 41 per cent for LRTs” - globalnews.ca - September 11, 2014"
