This is an example where process is paralyzing progress. Any city or organization that is truly committed to transformational change, to the magnitude of being the best place to raise a child, must necessarily have the wherewithal to recognize regressive policies and processes, confront them and change them to remove this strangulation effect.

Until we recognize the urgency and need to do so, we will continue to see the Santucci and Milnes of the world, bewildered by the disconnect between what we say as a city, and what we do, or are prepared to do.

It's the same reason why we still have transport trucks invading our residential neighbourhoods. It's the same reason why we are deprived of leveraging the wealth of features that our city has.

Entangling ourselves in regressive policies and somehow trying to justify them in the shining light of their counter productive impact, is akin to drinking the kool-aid on the path to failure.

I hope the city shakes itself out of this slumber and does the right thing.
