I don’t know if a pedestrian mall would be an automatic slamdunk. There are some places where it works and others that don’t.

Sparks Street in Ottawa while busy during work hours is quite desolate on weekends and evenings. The businesses there are hardly the kind that attract people. It has very little life and I know many tourists are often surprised by how empty it is.

On the other hand, I quite like Granville Island in Vancouver. Not a true “pedestrian mall” but pleasant nevertheless. It seems very busy every day of the week.

I do applaud the mayor for trying to think outside the box.
