His concerns should be recognized and addressed in a respectful manner

Serious concerns should be recognized and addressed, as Ryan said, but this was an ill-informed, ill-conceived, ill-written attempt to scare and mislead his readers with scenarios that bear little connection to reality. I happen to prefer LRT on Main, and I don't like the idea of losing on-street parking on King, but the Spec had no business publishing this tripe. (Although as Ryan says, they may have inadvertently given the cause of LRT a boost.)

If he is so concerned about the "well-being" of the city, he should do what credible advocates do: do his research, refine his thinking, and present his arguments coherently with evidence to back them up. If he can't be bothered to do that, why should he be taken seriously? If LRT advocates had used the same methods to argue for LRT, do you think anyone would have taken them seriously?
