What can you get for $1 billion?

In Toronto you get a short stretch of elevated highway that is not needed, not wanted by local councillors and the community and where cheaper alternatives exist that make better use of the land development potential.

In Norway you get a massive commitment to long distance bicycle lanes.

Which is the better business decision?

Torontonians would say support the car; that’s how people get to work.

A better business decision would be to look at the reduced health costs of a fit population, for a reduction car accidents, for a reduction is pollution and the mental health improvements from being outside. Remember this?
