A little off-topic, but speaking of parking:

Stoney Creek's councillor and residents are blaming the new parking metres for some shuttered doors in their downtown.

While I'm sympathetic and agree the metres could be part of the problem, I'd wager it has more to do with the massive box-malls that were erected on the East Mountain, the fact that mountain residents no longer have to drive through Stoney Creek neighborhoods to get to the expressway, and the fact that Stoney Creek residents can easily drive out to the Linc and get other shopping options.

I mean, it's not like "malls go up, local shopping dies" is unheard-of.
