This situation left me quite puzzled: Kent is west of Queen; Ryerson is east of Queen. What the hell the is the problem with just crossing at Queen since one must cross it at _some_ point? And why in heaven's name would Locke even be considered an option? Well, this map with walking route marked helps clarify the situation ...

Aberdeen and Queen is a busy, awkward corner and requires that kids walk almost entirely on two very busy streets: Aberdeen and Queen. By crossing at Kent, you could zigzag through the residential neighbourhood most of the way.

On a related note, I made the mistake of walking from Fortinos at Dundurn Plaza back to Westdale yesterday- goddam death trap. Unless, of course, you do what you "should" do and walk east to King & Dundurn, go east across Dundurn, then north across King, then go west across Dundurn and then finally make it back where you started from and head toward Westdale. Madness. Next time I go there I'm bloody well driving, no matter that it's only 15 minute walk - certainly that's the only mode of transport the city has in mind there.
