    Plans for high-speed rail in SouthWestern Ontario are still in progress. Who else would travel more if they could get across the province faster?

    Public transit is the best alternative when walking or cycling isn't feasible, and I love it!

    For the past 10 years, I've chosen to live and work in areas serviced by public transit. Currently, my commute is 30 minutes door-to-door on the Toronto subway. Sure, there are sometimes delays and it is sometimes crowded, but my only alternative would be to drive. The cost of rent prevents me from living any closer to my workplace, while traffic jams and paying for parking makes driving annoying. 

    During my commutes, I'll read books, browse the internet, watch movies or listen to music, answer emails, make plans with friends, and sometimes I'll even take a nap! Not to mention, there is no need to drive if friends or colleagues want to have a few pints after work ;)

      Those are my favorite things about public transit as well! Nice to be able to make it part of your lifestyle. :-)

    I love buying second-hand stuff and I've found some great deals on everything from vehicles, furniture, and electronics to sports, music, and hobby gear. A bit of wear and tear from a previous owner just adds character!

    Here are some reasons why:
    - My money goes right into the pocket of the seller, who usually needs or prefers to have the money
    - I find it satisfying to use and repair stuff until it literally falls apart or disintegrates
    - It's easier to judge the quality of a product when you can see the condition it's in after some use
    - I've flipped some purchases to break even or even earn some money after years of use
