Wow, brodiec, might want to get some therapy to get that log off your shoulder.

Fair or not, if Mac's evil bus subsidization program were scrapped, it would change road traffic and student housing locations significantly.

One bus, 60 students equals 50 cars with 1.2 students (avg. occupancy). Try to visualize the difference on Westdale streets.

Without cheap transit, students would be much less inclined to live on the main/king corridor and downtown, making those areas that critically need revitalization take a step back.

Westdale would become more of a student ghetto than it already is.

Neither would be a huge effect, but they would be noticed.

I don't like unfairness either, but let's be practical, not ideologically misguided.
