yea, I just saw some of the graphs in the Spec article and they don't make sense. ie - 'King and Sherman may only have sidewalks on one side of the road'. What?? 2 lanes of car traffic and 2 LRT lanes = 4 lanes. That's what is currently there.

The 'no parking along entire route' is also misleading. The maps on the city's rapid transit office show street parking on King at John and again in the area around Bay. Also, suggestions have been sent to the RT office with ideas for parking along Main from Queen to Bay and on King from Queen to Dundurn.

Furthermore, they are making a huge deal about only being allowed to turn right out of homes and businesses by Eastgate Mall. Yet, that is exactly the case currently on King AND Main through the entire downtown from the Delta to Westdale. Why not ask the owner of Harvest Burger what he thinks of folks only being allowed to access his restaurant from the left and being able to turn only right out of the lot? It's been that way for over 50 years.
