John Tory pitched a 22-stop “London-style surface rail subway” during his 2014 mayoral campaign. The plan now is for a handful of stations added to existing GO lines that were already slated for increased, electrified service - CHRIS SO / TORONTO STAR FILE PHOTO

The mayor's office directed what is meant to be an arms-length provincial transit agency, Metrolinx, on the messaging for Tory's signature SmartTrack plan and a senior TTC official described SmartTrack planning as "insanity". New exclusive story from me: https://t.co/cvcaUsUzKg

"We're getting almost nothing out of #SmartTrack; convenience for a few; longer commute times for others - #GOtransit and #CityPlanTO had it right with #GOrer and a 3-stop #SSE before #JohnTory came along"
