The economic driver of not only the city, but the province (if not the country) is just around the corner from the north end. The huge steel companies and the medium sized industries surrounding them employ hundreds of thousands of people and need to get their products out to the rest of the continent as fast as possible. The rest of the city needs to realize that the swift movement of workers and goods into and out of that area simply must take precedence over neighbourhood niceties like "safety" and "quality of life". If they don't like it, they can work harder to earn the money to move to a sleepy town like Toronto where there is no economic activity, and can therefore afford the time and space to have calm streets in the neighbourhoods in and around their core.
