Not to be a Debbie downer, but history is the best teacher. We will do the wrong thing, repeatedly, until there is a change of the guard at city hall, which could take another decade or two. I noted to a friend last week that I got a chuckle out of CHML doing live coverage from the event, all bullish on Leinberger's speech. We all know that station would be the first to go crazy if we dare suggest a two-way conversion, wider sidewalks, bike lanes....anything but the status quo. Hamilton seems to know how to get up for an event like that and everyone seemingly loves the message, but once the conference ends and everyone goes home, those same people are the ones resisting change much of the time. I agree with you though - things are improving here and will continue to. We just wont' see the wholesale change in our culture like Bogota and NYC are experiencing anytime soon.
