It's worth noting that, like Vancouver, Toronto flirted with a plan to criss-cross the city with highways in the 1960s that would have smashed through its urban neighbourhoods and destroyed most of its vitality. Also like Vancouver, Toronto wisely elected not to build many of those proposed highways, though a few, like the vestigial Allen Road, serve as reminders of what might have been without the vision of engaged citizens like Jane Jacobs and courageous leaders like Bill Davis.
