Can you believe that the T is $7 billion in debt? Why's that? That's a good question! I must say that considering the problems I had last year, I think that it's going to have a hard time earning people's trust. The T was closed for several days during last year's series of snowstorms. I had to burn some P.T.O., but when my supervisor got wind of it, she was really bull.
She told me that I had to suck it up and make the best of it. It took me more than 3 hours to get to work on the first time I attempted a commute, and it took 3 hours to get home. But with over 100 inches of snow last winter, I needed patience to get to and from work.
Since this past spring, the T has had to do extensive track repairs to keep the subway going. And it's only gonna get worse as winter comes back to haunt us.
What's next? Bankruptcy? I hear that they may want to privatize some of the lines. Give me a break!
