I really disagree with this idea that lowering the speed limits on King and Main will "empty out" the downtown. This is ridiculous. I think its the opposite: downtown is kind of empty-ish now because there are 5-lane super highways that go through it. These super-highways make it easy to get through downtown and conversely make it difficult to live there.

Vancouver doesn't have any equivalent of King/Main or even the DVP/Gardiner for that matter. It's notoriously difficult to traverse via car. And it consistently ranks in the top 5 cities in North America for livability. Coincidence?
