Love that MR 73 door chime. I wonder if it will be deployed systemwide (including the new trains).

Really? It's a new feature and sounds so feeble, although I notice that it got picked up by microphone, refilming some distance away from a departing train at Plamondon yesterday. I still can't tell if their sonic selection at mimicking the train choppers be a good idea.

Of all the recent escalations of 'language' tensions with transit employees dominating local Canadian (as opposed to Canadien) news, the irony behind this story about knitting racist station attendant lunging right outta her booth to tackle would-be passenger tops them all Yesterday's :
STM clerk assaults commuter over language, victim says

'Go back to your country,' woman alleges she was told

Once upon a time, Canadia/ens weren't that hick!

Today's :
Montreal métro worker may face assault charge in language incident


The STM notes that under Bill 101, it is not allowed to require employees to know a language other than French.

"Bill" instead of 'Law' signifies antagonistic Canadian (not Canadien) media's 36-year-old custom of shunning responsible journalism ...

Intention of three metro extensions just announced in (on-going) premier's inaugural speech just minutes ago...commitment to electric energy coupled to divergence from oil also just staked.

Follow-up:


Current:



Speculated, i.e., bandied about:



Likely -- highlighted extension segments probably don't factor into premier's announcement, because (a) Orange line pie-in-the-sky extension much promoted by Laval mayor who's just resigned today in response to findings revealed in ongoing official corruption inquiry, merely days after Montreal's own mayor's resignation for the very same sort of revelations (Montreal city executive committee's chair has also just relinquished his role today ), and (b) authorities keener for single-station Blue-line extension to tie into the :pfft: Pie-IX BRT, which will serve the busy boulevard that in the '80s was planned to be served by a new metro route, Line 6 (White):



Necessary:



Ideal:
