This is great - but the pessimist in me can't help but think this is just another in a lonnnnng line of experts who the city can carry on ignoring.

Were any councillors in attendance? It seems like not only will the horses not drink, we can't even lead them to the water. We have a long way to go before this kind of stuff sinks in to their heads.

They gleefully vote in favour of sprawl - see aerotropolis where they fought against the province and citizens for the right to waste half a billion dollars on land that won't bring any commercial taxes in - and which the city has to pay for from its own pocket.

At the same time they drag their feet about LRT, bemoaning the cost (even though it was going to be hugely subsidized by metrolinx) and being terrified that some single occupancy commuters might have to sit at some more traffic lights.

There's vision for you.

I don't think the current council could do a worse job even if they tried. It's almost as if someone is giving them personal bonuses every time they make a decision that's bad for the city.
