Thanks Jason. I agree fully on walkability: these are the streets I walk with my wife and kids. As a city we really should be ambitious and plan for success in reducing car trips. I remember Dundurn only a few years ago, with 50 kph+ traffic whipping past just inches away. And even more recently on York, albeit with wide sidewalks being some help. So my first preference that I stated in my formal feedback to the PIC was to convert Main to 2-way, and leave traffic alone on York and Dundurn! But failing that, being pragmatic, I wanted to have some feedback ready should the traffic engineers get their way.

But clearly there's room to de-prioritize cars from our street network! Doing these illustrations really made it clear how much so - just look at the York-Hess figure. Even with the improved cycling infrastructure, that whole area is just a sea of car lanes. -- Thomas Bernacki
