And then we have this:

[...] Will the LRT be of any benefit to those who live along the line, but work out of town? They will still need their car to get to and from work, but with the LRT taking up their route, it will take them that much longer to travel using side streets. http://www.thespec.com/opinion/letters/a...

What a sad state of affairs we are in when we have so little hope for this city that we want to build a downtown whose sole purpose is to provide through access for people who work on one side of the city and have to go through it to get to their job in another city.

How about looking at ways to make the downtown an attractive place for employees and employers to settle down?

My advice for people who work outside the city is to live in a part of the city that does not require you to drive through downtown to get to work. This type of commuting is only possible now because we have made it possible. In every other city in the world, before taking a job or buying a house you would think long and hard about putting the downtown core between you and your work, knowing full well that it makes no logical sense to commute through the centre of town twice a day
