"It staggers me that the concept of fully-funded inner city transportation should even be up for debate."

Kevin's comment: What staggers me is the flip side of this: That there is no debate about cutting off the insane money pit of flushing dollars down the toilet providing and maintaining car infrastructure for urban sprawl.

While ordinary people have to organize and fight and beg to get a pittance to build barely adequate infrastructure like the Cannon Street cycletrack, millions and millions of dollars magically falls from the sky to rebuild roads up the mountain without any cycling infrastructure at all.

Or the billions of dollars, $2.2 billion in Toronto alone spent by the provincial government on medical care for people poisoned by drivers.

Road construction and maintenance costs, police, fire and ambulance costs, medical care for people poisoned or crushed by car drivers... Billions and billions of dollars just magically appear from the hard-working taxpayer to be wastefully lavished on car drivers.
