All great ideas. IMO the political will to accomplish these things is going to come from those in their 30's and younger. Boomers and up are the ones holding everyone back with our outdated views on economic growth models, single use zoning, and individual vs. the collective good (Lloyd Ferguson anyone?). My preteen kids know that their survival depends on sacrifices, a fact that us older folks are still denying. So I believe that younger people must become more politically engaged if we are going to see any of these things come to fruition. Ward 1 had the lowest turnout per capita in the last municipal election because of our high student population. Tragic. These kind of stats need to be reversed.
