yea, there's no homeless or undesirables hanging out in the piazza's over in Europe right??

Mayor Fred is bang on here, and bang on in wanting to do something quick, not wait 5 years for more studies. The downtown BIA will oppose of course, because they like having so many cheque cashing and convenience stores within a 3 block stretch.

The south leg is an absolute no-brainer, and the north leg would work fine from John to James. Transit will be quicker and pedestrians will have free run of the mill, not speeding cars passing by.

Remember, LESS than 1km from King Street is Barton, Cannon, Wilson, Hunter and Charlton.

Another online forum had someone mention that those other streets are too far out of the way to get to, yet folks on the Mountain had plenty of options when Limeridge closed. The Mountain is built on a 1-km grid pattern...all major streets are 1-km apart.
If folks didn't mind detouring 1-km out of their way up there, it should be no problem to detour 1/4 to 3/4 of a km in the lower city and have 5 major streets to choose from in that distance, not just 1.
