Hey @CITYofCALGARY - its time to slow down & reassess the #GreenLine - for many reasons:

1) timing - not now - not during COVID, not post the collapse of oil prices - lets wait 5 to 10 years.

2) costs - are exploding - the cost per mile ESTIMATE - has more than doubled!! DELAY!
3) Ridership forecasts are just a guess - given COVID & ENERGY - there isn't a hope your forecasts are close to accurate - you can't rely on them - you can't. #DELAY

4) Your boffins (paid public servants and councillor assistants) are plugging social media with misleading job
forecasts - they keep saying 20,000 jobs - we all know that isn't permanent - some might be for a week - its a lie to plug that number - you all know better. #JustDelay

5) Planning is a fail - you announced the routing - but didn't realize you had to be 7 stories below downtown

Not holding my breath that we’ll see this level of #data - about cases, contact tracing and emerging clusters - from many other countries. Experiencing #Singapore’s response firsthand has been eye-opening, in all sorts of ways. #COVID 1/n…

2. Communication was key to creating a sense of calm. There was clear guidance from the healthcare authorities. From universities. From primary care providers. Heck, our *landlord* asked for travel declaration forms being signed within days of a few cases being identified. 3/n

1/9 I have purchased a car very recently. So, I went through the usual motions of a large and involved purchase at the time of my decision. This might also give you an insight into the auto sector slowdown #AutoSector #SlowDown #Economyslowdown #economy
2/9 Clean fuel vehicles are coming: Hydrogen fuel cell, & #ElectricVehicles (#BEV & #PHEV) are coming sooner than we thought. Govt envisions an electric mobility future for us & is taking a lot of steps to push EVs under #FAME2 scheme. To reduce pollution & fuel import bill.
3/9 If I buy a regular petrol/diesel car, it may get obsolete sooner than I imagined. Eg: NCR banned 10yr old #diesel vehicles to improve air quality, push towards electric. All this affects resale value of the #cars. Hence, I considered pushing the life of my current car
