I can't think of any better way to welcome in our new council than with an inbox full of steamed residents ticked off at the prospect of their neighbourhood being dumped on again, and being left with poor quality of life, danger for children and closed for business just so joe blow from ancaster can fly through downtown once a month when needs to.

RTH just updated their 'contact city council' form. Please use it and voice your displeasure over this decision.

I was at the last rapid transit open house and vibe, energy, excitement and enthusiasm for the project was downright amazing. Something happened behind the scenes since then (probably what nobrainer said - traffic engineers) and made a huge shift in thinking, DESPITE the wishes of those giving valuable input to the decision. Bratina just said that his 'chain' is actually the chain of the people and his power is from the people to make good decisions for their city. Let's make sure we remind the new council who they are working for. None of them would dare suggest their neighbourhood road be converted to 5-lane, one-way, designated transport truck route, with timed lights and skinny sidewalks. So, let's not allow them to treat us like second class citizens just because we choose to live in the lower city.
