This was sent as an open letter to all of city council. I'd encourage others to do the same. I think it's important that they understand two main things:

  1. The economic merits of this switch
  2. The fact that quicker, more convenient routes across town already exist, even with our 5-lane streets and their timed-lights. I don't use Main or King to get to the east end now, and I won't in the future once they are two-way. Our ring highways are quicker, and to be honest, more enjoyable driving on free-flowing roadways designed for high-speed travel.

Personally, I also see huge merits with the quality of life, livability, child safety components of this issue, but I don't think those things resonate with city hall as much as understanding that all the positive buzz on James North could be coming to a dilapidated King St near you, and the fact that nobody will be inconvenienced on their cross-town trips...we already have quicker routes across town.
