The posting is obviously slanted to suit the aims of the writer. Does an unconstricted intersection mean an underutillized road, or a road where traffic is regulated in an efficient manner?

There is an awkward attempt to connect the lack of congestion illustrated in this study to the number of empty storefronts along the B-Line route, implying some sort of cause-effect relationship. However, the very same stretch of King Street illustrated in this study also happens to be one of the most successful commercial stretches along King Street. King Street between Bay and Dundurn has one of the lowest storefront vacancy rates in the city. Compare this to Barton Street, which has some of the most constricted intersections as well as one of the highest level of vacant storefronts in the city.
