Good catch: that stretch of suburban South Granville is indeed very bad (600m between marked pedestrian crossings). I wonder if it has something to do with the fact Shaughnessey is the wealthiest neighbourhood in the City?

But overall, Vancouver is still much more oriented to pedestrians. And it does have an array of pedestrian crossings available to use, not just $80k pedestrian activated traffic lights.

I'm not claiming Vancouver is perfect, just that the attitude of drivers and city engineers towards pedestrians is much better overall.
