Well, the Durand Neighbourhood Association has done just that over many years, and found massive continuing support for pedestrian-friendly infrastructure improvements.

Even more to your point, just this August 1024 ward 2 residents voted on how to spend $1 million on a variety of infrastructure investments and many of the successfully funded initiatives were indeed to improve conditions for pedestrians (including a new pedestrian activated light on Hunter at MacNab).

So, your solution has been implemented, and the results are in: most residents DO want these sorts of improvements!

I'm not sure if you have children at Central, but last year I did and you should know that Bay did not even have a school zone until late last year! It was added after pressure from the School, Durand Neighbourhood Association, parents and residents. And crossing Bay IS a problem for the elderly and those with young children: the traffic is going too fast to cross safely and during rush hour the gaps are too short.

Although you might not agree, the residents have spoken in a variety of ways (including formal polling) and DO support this infrastructure. You might think it is a waste of money, but the majority do not.
