BTW - isn't building mass transit an example of induced demand. Just a demand of a different type. (If we keep building railways and LRT's people will use it - especially if we force them to by reducing the viability of private transportation.)

Agree completely though with the wastefulness of building more and more suburban blight. We need to develop brown fields and redevelop the inner cores of all cities. An outright ban on new greenfield development in Ontario is the answer for me - not plugging up private transit. (Why people were ever allowed to develop the land below the escarpment East of Stoney creek is beyond me. The best arable land in Canada wasted. The QEW should be restricted (or closed) not expanded and moved up above the escarpment in the clay.)
