Brandon >> What it does is invest in things that do not generate a profit but will attract people and businesses to invest in the area.

The city doesn't run ads for Tim Horton's, or McDonald's, they pay for them themselves, so if property owners along Main/King are a having difficult time attracting customers, perhaps it's not because they don't have enough free stuff from the city (subsidized transit route), maybe it's because they have gotten weak and have forgotten how to be entrepreneurs.

For example, downtown Dundas has very little transit, yet King St is filled with businesses and people on the street. How can Dundas accomplish this and yet downtown property owners can't?
