"Also the "gash" actually will end up looking much less like one than you think. The creek is now cleaner, there's proper sewage management, less sedimentary problems, less smell, a cleaned up Rennie St. landfill."

So what was stopping the City from cleaning up the creek? Why did it have to take a highway before the City started to care about it?

So the options were. 1. leave the creek as a mess. or 2. build a highway and then clean up the creek.

No third option? Clean the creek and not build a highway.

It's the same argument pro-expressway people are offering. No-jobs vs. Retail/box jobs. No-jobs was never an option. How about? Good paying/educated jobs vs. Retail/box jobs.

When options are created simply to have them fail and throw-away, they weren't real options.
