April 2, It's April, say what?
Back in December I published a report from a resident who lives next to the east rail corridor that feeds Go trains into Union Station. Here is an update of how things are progressing: It is big and heavy and if you get in its line of fire - prepare to be eviscerated!
Our neighbourhood recently stared down both barrels of this bazooka and wow — did we ever get burned. So Crazy women called Metrolinx. Metrolinx sent us their TPAP report and then held a series of public meetings to talk to us about their plans.
The meetings did not go well. The main problem Metrolinx has with its community relations is that they cannot seem to answer very basic questions. TCT readers know this all too well.
During one particularly memorable exchange, when a resident asked why Crazy women was allowed to circumvent its own guidelines which stipulate no new construction within metres of a track, the response was: One resident was actually standing on a sofa, shaking his fist TCT readers may be familiar with the already intimate experience of riding along the northerly tracks as you approach Union from the east.
Perhaps you saw one of us bending over while doing our laundry, eating our cornflakes or getting our kids ready for school. Building E-Zero will not only bring us closer together, it will also decimate our beloved tree canopy.
As the pictures below show, this canopy helps to transform our sleepy back laneway named after the First Nations Marathon runner, Tom Longboat into a virtual back-yard.
E-Zero will be used for the Richmond Hill line which operates diesel trains. After the public meeting debacle we asked for a copy of the TPAP report. The weight of the report knocked us back. It was massive - too big for one person to absorb.
So we formed a neighbourhood association to divvy up the work and spread the pain. The TPAP is technical. It is supposedly scripted for a general audience but the subject matter involves egg-headed engineering principles, mind-numbing electrification specifications and oddball environmental jargon I doubt even David Suzuki would comprehend.
The metrics in the TPAP are backwards. It only flags increases in current levels above 5 decibels. So, if your already loud noise is going to get just 4 louder - tough luck!
Metrolinx does not listen too well. When the TPAP got approved last December, more than 30 of our questions were greeted by garbled answers. After plucking out the TPAP shrapnel and licking our wounds, we decided to seek out another form of defense.
Surely the law will defend us? We have rights - right? It turns out that when it comes to railways - there are no laws. Not for us anyway.
Municipal bylaws are powder-less. Federal laws are blanks because they are actually only guidelines.click on the title of any post, it is a link to a separate page that shows all the comments.
