Infrastructure dollars flow to municipalities with an agenda. The automotive indistry was aggressive for advocating and championing the necessity for our extensive roadworks. In reality, this agenda supported their product, and their product alone.

We need to recognize this, raise it with our city council members, establish how our communities will not be used again in the future, and simultaneously work towards rectifying the current auto transport infrastructure systems with integrated forms of transport like bike lanes, streetcars. In order to make this change, this forum is great- but also a collective voice needs to be established. Share the Road Coalition is one way to go. Also, the use social networking to establish a consensus, and start writing your MPP, and the Minister of Transport.

Who in the Hammer can start a facebook group and get this going? Any volunteers?
