This is one of the best articles I've had the pleasure to read on this site. Not only does it make clear and concise points about the advantages of Urban Density and non-automobile based traffic vs Urban Sprawl, but it also clearly shows issues that this development may experience and how they are too being overcome. It also directly shows the correlations between Vancouver and Hamilton.

The only thing I would say is missing from this article is to touch base on a housing bubble that I can't help but feel Vancouver is experiencing, but even that is somewhat eased by the talk of lower income housing. I will also note that it also touched base on Vancouver eliminating much of it's architectural heritage, which is something I know many contributors to this site hold dear to (often excessively in my opinion, but that's neither here nor there).

Once again, great article.
