To me the biggest recent change that's hurt Downtown's culture is taking the buses out of Gore Park. Before, Gore Park was well-used as a waiting area for bus-transfers. Now? Dead and creepy.

I'm a huge fan of Fred, but I think that one was a mistake. And while the pedestrianization plan he put forth would've been better than the parking lot we've got now, I still think that bus stops were the best thing for that area. Building the Main/McNab thing was a good idea, but it moved the positive influence of waiting passengers out of the core. And, of course, it's even further from John Street, which is the main "downtown" stop for many busses.
