Send an email. That's always possible outside of working hours, and the city is happy to accept emailed comments. In any case, most of these public information sessions are held outside of working hours, in the evening from 6-8pm or on the weekend.

The problem is that Whitehead explicitly doesn't want traffic patterns to change in neighbourhoods outside his ward because it might affect his residents driving! If he did as you recommend and not object to changes in other wards, people wouldn't be so upset!

As for each ward paying for its own capital projects, that is just so far from reality that it's not a reasonable suggestion (should ward 15 pay the $20 million for road widening all on its own?). What you are suggesting is area weighting, by ward, for all spending!

And note that Whitehead opposed the bus lane, which wasn't in his ward, and cost nothing to the City.
