Ryan, You said "It was precisely by committing to urbanism - building LRT, taming their streets, establishing dense mixed-use building regulations, setting a firm urban boundary, removing highways, planting a million street trees, building a continuous bike lane network - that Portland achieved its densities".

You should really check your facts before making, what sound like good arguments, up. The population density of Portland in the 1980s was over THREE times that of Hamilton.

you said "please note that the average density of Hamilton is quite low, but the density of the lower city is much higher".

Do you really think people are that stupid? Of course that is true, but it is ALSO true of Portland.

"The east-west corridor today has the density to justify LRT - and that density will only increase as the line and TOD planning corridor drive billions of dollars in new investment over the next several years".

Who needs a study when Ryan can predict the future. Now I understand why you include the quote under your posts.
