Like many others I find this talk of a 'driveway-to-driveway' experience completely depressing - in a region that is so obviously behind in constructing adequate transit infrastructure for its citizens.

Why are such ridiculously vapid slogans like 'driveway-to-driveway' taken seriously? Do you have to go some school to learn how to become a sprawl consultant? Does the city really care about the ease with which Ancaster residents get to their local CFL game?

Last week: sustainable development => good; this week: sprawl-friendly (aka driveway-to-driveway) development => preferred. Next stop: Dallas (wasn't that detour through Pittsburgh's stadium district entertaining?)
