Unbelievable. So, takng a dead-basic spatial approach - delaying 2 people (in two cars) 5 minutes outweighs the benefit of 70 people gaining 1 minute (and a pile of reliability)?

I'm no mathematician, but that doesn't sound right to me.

Simple reasoning aside, Terry et al.'s style of surveying really frustrates me. I'm all for democratic participation and involvement - but as an Ancaster resident, there is no way my opinion should hold the same value as a public transit user and/or someone who lives in a downtown neighbourhood. I'm quite sure that if Terry called us out-skirters up and asked questions like "Do you believe in more sustainable development?", "Would you like to see growth in our urban core?", "Would you like to see greater tax revenues from our downtown wards?","Do you believe in better, more efficient mobility within our downtown?", etc., my neighbours would giving a resounding "Hell yeah!" to all of those.

The bus lane is simply the tool to achieve those goals.
