Growth, growth, growth. What about sustainability? Stability? Equilibrium? Growth is what neo-liberals love to push but perpetual growth is an impossibility. Growth is what is spurring climate change and traffic and poverty. Growth has overwhelmingly gone to the 1%. Can we stop with the promises for more growth? Let's get local, small, and sustainable. Growth is a lie perpetuated by the super rich who know they'll reap all the benefits while we're left holding the bag. Perfect example? All the businesses clamoring for a Bay Street stop. They want the taxpayer to fund the stop so they can build condos and make more money.

Also, taking out bike lanes and adding lanes for car traffic so a public-private partnership can run a train down the center of the city for profit is wrong on so many levels I don't even know where to begin. The best part is that the costs to build it are public and the profits remain private. Perfect. There's your 3P right there.
