The streetcar system is perfect for downtown TO. It forces people to leave their cars at home and take public transit

Yet other North American streetcar systems have totally ignored Toronto (hint: because foreign, thus impossisble or scary). They're not even copying their logical design; bidirectional lines, centre street running.

having grown up in Toronto I have to add that streetcars are more than a mode of transport but a way of life and culture. sadly they have been deliberately allowed to degrade under the last right wing regime under Rob Ford which favoured removing bike lanes and better accommodating cars, he even wanted to rip up all the streetcar lines to make it easier for fat ass (no offence to thick folk- more a state of mind) suburbanites who like to barrel down city streets in massive chevy suburbanswith usually only one driver.

Why are these beautifull trams not running with modern pantographes like anywhere else?

There are still old cars on the network which use trolley poles. Bombardier is slow with delivering the vehicles. Once the old cars are gone they can change the overhead wiring.
