Weston Station

In the above Toronto transit map, Weston Station is clearly marked on the UP Express and GO Line Service routes, heading northwest out of (downtown) Toronto. As one might expect, it is just south of the extended horizontal line connecting Lawrence West (University, line 1) and Lawrence (Yonge, line 1) subway stations.

Roy Murray wrote an article on about Castlepoint's "Weston Park" proposed development right beside Weston Station, pointing us to a YouTube video by Castlepoint Numa on the project. I watched it on December 2nd and noticed that the location of Weston Station had been moved southeast so as to appear much closer to Eglinton Ave. W. in Mount Dennis. So I decided to make a YouTube comment pointing that out: "There's a transit map at 0:50 to 0:55 where Weston Station pops up at an incorrect location. It's actually a good deal further northwest. Presumably the disingenuous placement is meant to convince the target of this propaganda piece of the station's proximity to the Eglinton Crosstown corridor."

I noticed today that my comment had been removed and comments turned off.


  1. ... and as of this moment, looks like the video has been made private. Sigh.

    1. They moved it:

      Incredibly, they fixed the location!
