#Tarsands trolls advocating subways - virtual subways

It is getting harder and harder to be an oil-industry troll. They try every way possible to stop people from demanding more and better public transit. The latest scam is to oppose real transit with virtual transit. What is real transit? Transit that is affordable, budgeted. What is virtual transit? It is transit that is not affordable, not budgeted.

Why do they want subways? Harper has accidentally told the truth. To send poor people underground, so that cars can continue in the sunlight. Cars choke the economy, causing clots in the bloodstream of commerce. They dump carbon into the air and cause wars over energy. But oil trolls don't care. Their job is to sow uncertainty, confusion, and fear so oil profits will continue to flow.
Harper weighs in on Toronto transit debate: He prefers subways - The Globe and Mail: "“I prefer when I want to use public transit to go underground, unimpeded ... and when I want to use my car I prefer not to be running in to LRTs and streetcars,” Mr. Harper said"
