Revenue, and revenue growth, is the mantra -- formerly only for private businesses, but it has caught on in our public institutions as well.

Hospitals and universities need to rethink their priorities as community members and neighbours. Hospitals definitely need to have parking available for patients and their families, but surface parking is NOT the preferred alternative. Parking rates should be lowered for patients and visitors and increased for employees.

Employees should be encouraged to find alternative transportation, which is difficult because of shift working -- better transit would help in this regard. It seems improved transit is at least a partial answer to a lot of our issues as a city.
