Moylek. You're absolutely right. I've always noticed that when I'm in real cities where people can use transit and walk etc..... Hopefully one of these years we'll start charging for insurance and health care costs like some European nations do - if you smoke, drink, never walk, are over your ideal weight by a certain amount etc.... you pay more than someone who is living a healthy lifestyle. So much of our tax money is wasted in the health care system on people who are dealing with completely preventable illnesses due to wrong lifestyle choices.

Hamilton, of course, with the most km of major roads and freeways per person than any city in Canada would singlehandely fill the coffers in this respect.
