Thanks for your thoughts Jason.

A couple of points. First, you invoke Portland and their planning process and contrast that with Hamilton's. But you presuppose that Hamilton staff are not going through a similar process. I mentioned Portland in my article for a reason. After 30 years to achieve 10% mode share, there are still plenty of gaps, spare infrastructure in the downtown business district, and even in Portland sometimes the answer to cycling projects is "no". The caricature of Portland that is so often used is not particularly useful.

Second, I again am struck by the conflict between two of your positions. On one hand, you push for bime lanes to nowhere on King St while complaining about a non-continuous facility on Hunter. Which is it?
