our ring highway.

Where do all the east/west cars go in Toronto between the Gardiner and 401? Why don't we bulldoze Rosedale, Casa Loma, the the Bayview/Eglington neighbourhoods and anything else in the way and build a new east/west highway through the centre of Toronto for the poor souls who have to drive all the way to the 401 or Gardiner to find a freeway. Oh wait, they aren't poor souls. They are rich in fact if they are lucky enough to own property in central Toronto where streets are calm, leafy and property values are insane....far from any freeways. Funny how that works.

Hamilton has a stunning ring freeway network now. So stunning in fact, it's quicker to take the 403-Linc-Red Hill to reach the east end from Westdale instead of using this gross Main St freeway. If Main was a proper city street like these renderings show, it would be even quicker to use the ring freeway. If people don't want to use our nice highways, let's turn them into linear park space for local neighbourhoods.
