TransitCamp set to improve the TTC

A group of Toronto bloggers are getting together this weekend for the TTC TransitCamp to brainstorm ways to improve the TTC’s absolutely horrid website.

When I first heard about it a few days ago, my first impulse was to try to get involved. Then I realized, there are probably many more Torontonians with much more to contribute than one who drives every day to random parts of the GTA.

Some got together on January 21 to plan the event, and the group can be seen in this Flickr set. The event has even been dugg! The buzz is building and I can’t wait to hear about the great ideas that are sure to result from this innovative “unconference.”

Toronto’s subway a likely terrorist target

A focus group study by the Federal government has highlighted the common belief amongst urban Canadians that Toronto’s subway is the most likely target for terror in this country. And the inventor of pointing out the obvious rests comfortably in his or her grave.

“For many, Toronto’s size, international profile and economic and financial importance to Canada made it the most probable target, especially by participants from this city.”

I think they just forgot to mention Toronto’s cultural influence as well.
