People love making economic arguments they don't understand about urban design and traffic planning. Both the spectator and many local politicians deserve a fair bit of blame for this.

But really, if a fast and efficient network of urban freeways like York and Cannon actually did anything beneficial for the economy, Hamilton would be one of Canada's most prosperous cities.. And yet it certainly isn't, And if urban congestion, lack of parking spaces or two way streets were anywhere near as bad for the economy as these pundits claim, downtown Toronto would resemble a refugee camp.

Urban freeways and parking spaces compete directly with anything worth parking for or driving to.
