Glad that they've expanded the scope of this, but there's much more they could do with their resources. If I'm not mistaken, this is now the sixth "Open James North". Focusing so intently on a single neighbourhood creates the impression that there is limited potential elsewhere in the city, and no other neighbourhoods (that perhaps are even more auto-centric) to be illuminated by being car-free.

I'm sure they would love to expand it, but the cost of closing streets is astronomical. Would be nice to see more BIA's get involved.
