Despite this graphic showing that the extension of Line 2 between Kennedy Station and McCowan and Sheppard Station travels through some of the lowest employment density areas in Scarborough, the extension provides three new key interconnections which allow for the optimization of existing transit, as well as provide the perfect base for future expansion and a proper transit network for Scarborough

"SmartTrack is nothing but two new GO stations in place of two new subway stations for Scarborough - There was nothing wrong with Metrolinx' plans before John Tory came along - The 3 Stop SSE would have been a major improvement - SmartTrack does nothing but slow GO down - We were better off with the two extra subway stations"

"And yes; Scarborough Centre is not the centre of Scarborough's universe or Scarborough transit; that is why 3 or 4 stops are required, not just 1"

"The bus congestion is better located at McCowan and Sheppard than in Scarborough Centre; and a 3 or 4 stop subway extension would reduce bus congestions by shortening routes along Sheppard Avenue, Ellesmere Road, and Lawrence Avenue, as well as distribute bus traffic over 3 or 4 stations instead of 1"
