I attended the open streets last Sunday and enjoyed it. It made me think about how Hamilton has come along since the not so far away days when Transportation for Liveable Communities did small scale parking meter parties and started the first car free day celebrations in the community; participants would put money in the parking meters, throw down the sod, drag out the couches and have a party! Jugglers, music, dance card games. One of my fondest memories of these was the time kids were invited to decorate a car with paint! All this was carried out with no funding whatsoever. Just goes to prove that you don't need money or even permission to make social change happen-just audacity and a sense of fun!

Three cheers to TLC-pioneers in guerrilla transportation action. Grassroots rock!
