Why don't we let people who live downtown, or at least have a clue about the place, make the decisions about it. Downtowns don't have 'aterial roads'. They have multi-functional streets. Where is the main throughway in Toronto? Not Queen or King. If you want to zip through, you take the Gardiner or Lakeshore, away from all the action.

These comments are only typical of the general lack of understanding of urban centres and what makes them functional. It's this predominant ignorance that has imposed suburban values on our downtown for years. People who live, walk, shop, and spend their time and money downtown should be the leaders, and we need to speak out and educate those who still don't have a clue.
