I'm not saying Whitehead or his constituents are right.

I should also say that my comments about objectivity are not a suggestion to let relativism reign. Some arguments are stronger than others, and they deserve to be treated as such. And, as you say the vantage point from which you see the problem impacts your perspective on it. We seldom view city-building or spatial planning problems objectively for this reason ... we live in the city. We don't debate or examine problems from a detached or neutral vantage point. I want complete streets, because I want to be able to walk or cycle safely around the lower-city without fear of being maimed or killed. At present, my household is reliant on a car for economic sustenance ... I still need roads to get in and out of the core. I just don't need 4 and 5 lane one-way streets to do that.

Truthfully, I tend to be more concerned about GO service or the #4 or #2 buses, than the bus lanes or B-Line LRT, though I support both. That's self-interest. I use the former, but seldom the latter (King and Main corridor).
