The buttons at Aberdeen and Dundurn are not placebos, but they're definitely broken. Each of the four directions at that corner get an advanced green for left turning. So instead of pedestrians being able to cross for ~ 50% of the cycle, you can only cross ~ 25% of the cycle. There's probably a 3 minute wait between crossing opportunities. What's worse - if you don't press the button, the light gives you 0% of the cycle to cross - allowing cars to make right turns unimpeded.

Aberdeen and Dundurn is a residential area. There isn't (and shouldn't) be enough traffic to justify such a crappy pedestrian service level. This should be the next corner on the "reprogram" hit list IMHO.
