Sheppard West station

Starting this month, Downsview station in Toronto will be no longer called “Downsview.” It is now called “Sheppard West” instead.

At first, I was worried this might create some confusion for people who have been used to “Downsview” for decades.

I also worried this confusion might lead to chaos or violence.

But riding in a delayed train for the third time in one week, I realized I have nothing to worry about…because it doesn’t matter what the station is called and I’m not going anywhere on this train for a while.
