Absolutely, and I don't consider you one of the brainless parrots invoking the "silent majority" argument in the form I'm calling out against. My comment was for everyone to read, indeed.

Just another addendum - in the ward to which I moved, 90% of the people who turned out, voted in Mrs. Meed - a 8-80 walkability, complete streets, pro-cycling-infrastructure, greenspace and greenbelt protecting, responsible development advocating councilor. So although the population does indeed mostly drive, that does not automatically reflect the sampling of what those same constituents wish to see develop.

I am just making sure that this "silent majority" faux is fully explained and called out finally, because it gets repeated. My comment was aimed at the general audience, sorry for the phrasing. Communicating quickly yet effectively, by text over internet, is harder than it looks.
