I live on the section of Aberdeen that's east of Queen. It was the Durand Neighbourhood Association that led the charge on the bump-outs on Aberdeen, a stance I supported fully. Prior to bump-outs, the traffic was two lanes of high volume and high speed. After the bump-outs, the traffic is now one lane, but still of high volume, mostly during the morning rush hour. People still use this stretch of Aberdeen to get to Bay Street and then down Bay to Main or King.

I should point out that the City wanted to install concrete bump-outs. Residents said they didn't want all that concrete and asked for planters. The only way the City would agree to planters is if the residents agreed to install plants and maintain the bump-outs, which we did and do every year. The City did provide the soil.

As to the "ultra-wealthy" descriptor, I'll just leave that label alone.
