I thought my argument was fairly well defined right at the top: "If we want neighbourhood schools that kids can walk to, we need to build and maintain neighbourhoods where people walk."

And in fact you seem to get that when you acknowledge, "The problem wasn't that children couldn't walk to public school, it was that everything else was designed to be driven to." That is the point and it is the cultural priorities of our elected governments at both the local and provincial level.

I don't disagree with you that Mount Pleasant Village is not an ideal urban development, but it does demonstrate that we can have neighbourhood schools serviced by sidewalks within the current funding model.
