While this is true, I think the goal of the past 50 years has been to get people drive in to downtown, and quickly drive out of downtown. What I'm speaking of would be to allow dollars to flow easily into the downtown while ensuring walkability and controlled traffic flow. So, a slight hybrid. In theory, that could be a benefit to the hotels (current and proposed) in the core, entertainment facilities like Copps - where upwards of 18,000 could be descending into en masse. Potentially, you could have a destination that appeals to visitors given its easy to get to, only 5 minutes from the highway, AND have a walkable, pedestrian friendly environment that can be enjoyed and frequented.

Certainly rose-coloured-glasses suppositions, but what the hell? Perhaps there is a cake-and-eat-it-too style solution out there?
