Funny that driver delays should be brought up...

It seems the city is happy to accept pedestrian "solutions" that require walking 300m extra to a dedicated crossing.

But could you imagine having a left turn restriction or other blockage that required drivers to go 3km out of the way? That's the distance from the 403 to Victoria (Canadian Tire) and is the distance covered at 50km/hr in the same time a pedestrian covers 300m at 5km/hr. If the pedestrian is elderly or young or has restricted mobility, it's even more ludicrous.

We act like the impositions on pedestrians and cyclists of this dysfunctional network is akin to asking a driver to circle the block. But the functional equivalent is more akin to asking drivers to circle the core.
