are you aware of any 'extremists' on the complete streets side of things? I'm not. I've only heard thoughtful, proven ideas to bring complete streets to Hamilton. I haven't once heard anyone suggest to get rid of cars, or close streets to cars. People have suggested that our 5-lane streets with a capacity for 50,000 cars a day, but only carrying 15-20,000 per day should lose 2-3 lanes for other purposes, but that's exactly what a complete street is.

The only extremism you hear in these conversations is from dinosaur councillors or people dead-set against anyone daring to move around the city by any means other than car.
