Dude, look at Dubai or New York or some place where vehicles and population grew together. The result was a sea of cars regardless or road widths. This GTHA region will not grow indefinitely, and have lane capacity to support this kind of thinking. We and our descendants are going to lose a lot more time than you are worried about at present, if we don't work toward a sustainable city, and like a tumor, the longer you wait, the harder to fix. There is so much hyperbole about the effects of complete streets, understandable, what we have now is all that most people know, and you are scared you will sit in permanent gridlock. These arguments are going to seem ridiculous if GTHA tries to keep growing like it is, and not improve some options to push some users away from cars. It's not always easy to articulate a bigger picture and future consequences of inaction!
