It is almost difficult to believe this kind of stupidity is actually happening.

Continually sprawling out onto greenfields, continuing to have difficulty keeping up with that infrastructure, and then using it as an excuse not to upgrade things where people already are. Brilliant.

Are these streets that were built without sidewalks? If so, why? Why complain now? Were they rural areas that suburbs caught up to, thus in need of upgrading? So many questions. If only someone had the foresight to anticipate that unchecked sprawl would make things more difficult in the long run.

I don't understand why people that want to live in suburbs, can't do so in properly planned and priced neighborhoods. And why people that want to live in dense urban areas, can't have upgrades to make that environment appealing and attract more people close to existing transit and amenities.

Let's elect conservatives, have suburban sprawl all the way from here to Welland, go broke, and blame it all on downtown's ambitions to grow and improve. Thinking like champions right there.
