Early February, snow coming down up above on Eglinton, but 18 metres undergound the LRT construction site was warm enough for workers to be in T-shirts. Four Leasiders were able to view the site and take photos for the rest of us. They were Erica Cooke and John Gaitanakis, of the South and North Leaside Transportation Committees, Ward Councillor Jon Burnside and LPOA co-president Geoff Kettel, on a special invitation from Metrolinx.
