It's all the same old narrative. Screw the old lower city.

Everyone living outside of the core doesn't want to see anything change. The over concentration of halfway houses, lodging homes and social services in Wards 2 and 3 suits them just fine. They don't want any of that where they live.

Change the streets to two-way to calm traffic? They only want that where they live. Speed through the core of the city because they have chosen to live so far from where they work? That's their normal. Name me one other city anywhere where they pride themselves on how fast you can get THROUGH their core. Name me one other city anywhere that has 400 Series highways exiting into live traffic.

Most people don't want a 21st Century Transportation network since they're wedded to a time where the car is king. You drive everywhere. Get outta my way. Their world starts and ends at their property line.

This isn't how you build a healthy and vibrant city - ghettoizing your core - but the majority of Hamiltonians like it just fine.

And that is just sad.
