Move to condo downtown, then you don't have to worry about stuff like that.

^^ Walk to work, who cares? I used to just cross the street to get to work when I lived downtown. Do you really need a 3000 sq.ft house in the burbs?

Wise advice from a guy with a house in the burbs with luxury cars & a 20ft boat?

Spadina is a clusterfuck right now as well. Intersection at fort york is closed for the new street car tracks plus a lane is reduced all the way to king. Also queen is closed at Spadina due to the fire at the roots store.

Can you imagine this shit in 5-10 years? And there is no solid public transit plan in place to alleviate this.

Seriously, I've told you guys the solution. Move, to downtown! If you work/party/eat downtown, move there. Sure you will have to live in a box in the sky, but you don't have to deal with traffic. cutting the grass, accumulating too much stuff etc.

I always love when we have jobs in the city. I know my commute is gonna suck no matter what so I almost always choose to work a bit later just so I can try and cut down on it a bit.

Luckily my days downtown per year can be counted on 1 hand.

I was stuck in the 401 west bullshit tonight

I totally forgot about this thread and I was stuck for 30+ minutes from Yorkdale to 400N. I had to get on 400N then take 407 to get out of the clusterfuck on 401

Fuck Toronto and all the highways and retarded urban planning by the City

I *love* toronto w/ a passion - I meant that in a very sarcastic manner.

I was driving back from oshawa last night and heard on the news that the 401 west bound was a clusterfuck again - sure enough, did the toronto lap. 401 --> dvp --> gardy -> qew and home.

fuck that.

I used to live across the street. I can only imagine how bad it is in rush hour.

It's actually not bad at all to get out. I "get off" work at 7, but since I moved I leave at 5:15 because trying to get into the city at 7 is brutal.
