@adam2 - Actually, the crosswalks in Toronto are mandatory - if not in law, then simply by the fact that pedestrians in Toronto treat them as if they are. And so they should. They are a great aid in slowing down traffic and providing a safe(ish) way across busy streets.

They aren't perfect - several people have been killed attempting to use them - but they at least give a fighting chance.

As I think about this proposed crosswalk, I'm beginning to prefer a stop light. I think that making Aberdeen a more pedestrian friendly street (read: not a highway through the neighborhood) might convince people accessing the mountain to use the 403/Linc. While I am for people coming downtown, I don't think the highway-like nature of Aberdeen helps our city at all.
