The neighbourhood associations of the affected neighbourhoods (and BIA's) need to make this issue a top priority. Here in Westdale, our neighbourhood association, working with our councillor, was able to put a stop to Mac's heavy construction vehicles using our narrow residential sidestreets. The fact that the King St. truck route didn't conform to the city's current truck route standards even though it was still technically legal helped the case, but it was still a huge battle because of Mac's enormous clout.

By all means email your councillors, but this issue will take a very concerted and united effort on behalf of the affected neighbourhoods and BIA's. It's an important step in reclaiming our streets as public spaces.
