The stretch of King you suggest could accomodate some curbside parking (presumably along one side of the street) is miniscule when compared the vast swath of curbside parking that would be lost under this proposal. While I agree, some net loss could be accepted by retailers along King Street, this is hardly the case in this report. Effectively all curbside parking on King between the Delta and John Street would be lost. I am quite confident that businesses along King will find that completely unacceptable. Also, lets not forget the lost source of income in the form of meter fares that the city will lose.

Rather than lose so much curbside parking along both of these main roads, why not locate the LRT on Main, thereby limiting the lost curbside parking to just this street rather than both?
