Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

St. Clair streetcars

St. Clair streetcars, originally uploaded by sdfrederiksen.

I came across this image on at the top of an article about how they are coping with winter, and how maybe Vaughan does it better.

But I do like a good streetcar picture and I have a very minimal excuse for posting it. I was woken on Friday morning- early – by someone in Toronto offering me a job. I had forgotten that my resume is still on Monster (don’t bother I have inactivated it now). I explained what I am doing now and why I thought she might have a hard time getting a suitable reference for me. But mainly, in one of those “I didn’t know I thought that until I hear myself saying” it moments, I told her exactly why why I did not want to go back to work – and especially not in Toronto, right now.

Like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

  1. Thanks for this photo Stephen. This is the reason why I never chose to study or work in Toronto. BRRRRRR 😦

  2. You make me want to move back. Toronto is so beautiful with fresh snow. You can feel the it soft under your feet, and hear the silence as it sifts down. It is luminous and optimistic and warm. Snow doesn’t infiltrate to the bone like the west coast drizzle and damp. In Vancouver it is the summer that is a beautiful succession of perfect days, unlike that other season of rain. (And while spring in the east starts as a filthy brown thing of revealed dog poop and litter, autumn is a golden magic of melancholy old buildings swept by eddies of leaves in the crisp air.)
