@yikes, Wilson and Mahoney have consistently espoused the virtues of urbanism, but if you look through the archives you'll notice a HUGE difference in the angles of other columnists in the past 4-6 years since RTH came aboard. The editors, Dreschel and many of the regular columnists were downright frustrating back then. Its why I cancelled my subscription. And I'm not just referring to the Spec. 900CHML, Cable 14's 'opinionators' or whatever they're called now, Brabant papers etc..... The Spec has seen some balance take place, but the others are as bad as ever. I have no problem with various views and ideas, but when it requires publishing lies to make the point, I draw the line. Just recently on the radio and in print we've heard anti LRT arguments that "the trains can't scale our Mountain" (as though it's Everest), "can't run in snow", "will cost $50 billion" etc..... the old media becomes no more trustworthy than the National Enquirer when they are required to publish nonsense for the sake of having readers hear 'the other side'. Maybe, just maybe, in some issues in life 'the other side' isn't really worth hearing.
