Royson James: History suggests that another subway review is pointless

Royson James: History suggests that another subway review is pointless It’s a cruel hoax, this news that Metrolinx has convened a “panel of experts” to review plans for subway extensions on Line 1 north of Finch up to Richmond Hill and Line 2 northeast of Kennedy into the Scarborough Town Centre. Their defined task? “To assess, critique and advise on technical and commercial deliverability,” “consider and evaluate potential alternatives,” and identify changes that might “deliver the benefits in a faster time frame, at less cost.” The panel has a worthy task. The review may be real.

TORONTO — "Joker" star Joaquin Phoenix stunned Toronto subway passengers with a surprise visit that briefly clogged a downtown station's platform and stairwells.

The movie star made the afternoon appearance just before rush hour to view an underground publicity campaign promoting veganism, but did not speak to onlookers or board a train.

Phoenix spent about five minutes wandering past transit riders to view black-and-white images of farmed animals. The wall murals are part of a campaign by the Colorado-based organization Be Fair Be Vegan.

Leading the tour was Anita Krajnc of the vegan advocacy group Toronto Pig Save.

Gatwick 'drugs bust' turns out to be cake ingredients A "drugs bust" at Gatwick Airport turned out to be a suitcase full of cake ingredients for a vegan bakery.

She says she met Phoenix at a protest last summer at a Los Angeles slaughterhouse, when he gave her his contact information.

Phoenix is in Toronto to attend the Toronto International Film Festival, where he is promoting his new film "Joker." He was set to attend an awards gala just hours later to receive an acting prize.

About two dozen vegan supporters and media followed Phoenix as he toured St. George station on Monday, pausing occasionally to look at sad images of sheep, pigs, fish and other farmed animals.

Krajnc says the event was organized very quickly, noting she asked Phoenix on Sunday if he could make an appearance and he agreed that night.

"He's so busy, the only window he had was 3 to 5 p.m. today and he has this big award, yet he took time out to come see Be Fair Be Vegan Toronto because it's so close to his heart," said Krajnc.
