I guess we have slightly different recollections of exactly what the officer said (and its implications).

As far as I recall, he said that if we were concerned about traffic safety and speed we should consider asking for a 30km/h zone, like they have in the North End. He said it was already reducing speed and seemed to be working well. I would interpret this as "recommending" 30km/h zones for neighbourhoods who are concerned about traffic. (And "recommending" is not the same as saying "you should definitely do this", it just means that it is a put forward as a possible solution to the problem of fast, dangerous traffic.)

He was not aware of the five-year moratorium on 30km/h zones, which is why I raised this at the meeting. We cannot "go through the City" if the city will not entertain any requests for the next five years.
