That is my impression as well. That mindset is just as obsolete as the ICEs they're driving. I tell you truthfully, having the choice to live comfortably and peacefully with no car, is worth more to me than the car.

The problem includes, but is bigger than Hamilton's downtown. The other day in physio, overhearing background chat, downtown Hamilton came up and was spoken of pejoratively as though it was a matter of course. However a Burlington mayoral candidate also wants to cancel bike lanes because they're ineffective. Meanwhile I sit on my balcony and watch with my own eyes schoolkids and adults use the on road bike lanes (at least in ward 2 of burlington where the network is a somewhat decent beginning). And Europe is beginning tests of hydrogen-electric trains, and we are still banging our heads against the same wall, struggling to even string some wires over some track, having to constantly debate to exhaustion just to maintain the improvements we do have and not slip backwards into 60s motormania hell.
