Ah yes, it must be wrong because some businessmen and a few politicians said it was wrong. Let's ignore the findings of all the previous consultations, meetings, hearings, reviews, because reasons?

Also, that's some prime FYGM right here.

And because the City themselves said:
Quote:
Based on our analysis and what we’ve heard we will be continuing to evaluate how to build the Green Line through the Downtown and Beltline. This means we will be investigating ways to shorten the tunnel and bring as much to surface as possible.

This doesn't mention delaying the project indefinitely.

A delay of about a year or so, to study what would be the most cost effective use of the resources Calgary has available now. A delay that shouldn't even matter because the downtown core isn't even scheduled to RFP until 2021:





It would push back completion of the SE segment, but that shouldn't matter since its doubtful the City would open that line with nothing in downtown to connect it to. Even if there was no delay, Phase 1 would probably still wait to 2027 to open because ridership (and operating losses) would be terrible otherwise.

Fair enough. That said, I don't see the calls for re-assessment putting a timeline on this. Only "send it back to the drawing board", not "here's a process to follow with a delivery date of x".

Oh, I was working off his motion, which is asking for a final report no later than Q2 2020. I didn't notice he didn't put the deadline on his statement.

So is the green line going to be halted? Shame City Hall if it is not built!
