Don’t try to answer that question, because you couldn’t possibly know how to determine the answer.
That is why, according to Anthony Furey in today’s 24Hrs, Adam Giambrone has pledged $100,000 to, wait for it… pay a firm to develop a plan to look at ways to implement a strategy to determine whether or not the TTC is dirty or not.
This is not money to clean up the TTC. This is not money to determine if the TTC is clean or not. This is not money to create a strategy to determine if the TTC is clean or not. It is money to pay for a plan to look at ways to implement those strategies.
As Furey suggests, the TTC has cleaners on staff and the cleaners have supervisors. Figuring out if trains are clean or dirty is in the job description of those supervisors. If the supervisors are not doing their job, they need to be fired, and if figuring out if the trains are clean or dirty is not in their job descriptions, then senior management who wrote those job descriptions need to be fired.
I guess the TTC simply has so much money lying around that there is no room to build new lines or increase service levels where it is needed, so they need some new way to spend money.
