Ford’s subway to crawl stop by stop
The Sheppard subway plan will envision expansion out to Scarborough Town Centre but start by focusing on financing construction of a first stop, says the man tasked by Mayor Rob Ford to find billions in private investment.

Gordon Chong told the Star in an interview he will release his hotly anticipated report next month, “certainly before Christmas,” and expects construction underway well before the next civic election in October 2014.

“Our project and plan is to go to Scarborough Town Centre, but we do it in phases, opening each new station as we’re ready,” Chong said. “The most important thing is that we get started in this council’s term.

“As long as progress can be shown, I think the mayor kept his promise.”
