I'm confused why my post above is down voted while the one above is up voted. I pointed out a fact about Vancouver that was missing in the above post. The post above mine is misleading and inaccurate.

Perhaps some proof to back up my point will help. Newtime said "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".

Below I have posted links to several Vancouver Streets. Please compare the images of Vancouver in the links to our "5 lane super highways".

As a pedestrian, which of the roads would you rather be crossing?

Main Street

Granville Street

Knight Street

Boundary Rd.

West 41st

Kingsway

Clark Drive

Quebec Street

Note, I could list many many more such examples. I don't have all day though.
