well said. Mississauga deserves huge kudos for changing gears mid-stream. Most car-addicted places never learn from their mistakes.

In Hamilton our faux leaders use lines like "well, we don't have congestion like TO yet so everything is fine".

Yea, we also don't have the tremendous growth that TO has because the majority of people who move here know they need to own at least 1 car to make it work. We're harming our own economic potential and urban revitalization potential by simply fooling ourselves into thinking the status quo works just fine.

20 years ago if half the 403 closed, it wouldn't gridlock the entire city. Today it does. 20 years from now that will be a regular traffic occurrence if we continue to refuse to provide ANY options.
