Well you see Toronto is not like New York. Here we don’t follow some loopy left wing bike loving mayor like Bloomberg. Nor do we just do little things like close Times Square to traffic, this is Toronto; we take a portion of Bloor street far enough away from downtown and then we make a plan and then we debate and vote on it at different committees. Plan and vote, vote and plan, defer defer defer but don’t implement. Meanwhile data is good for New Yorkers because they don’t have opinions, Toronto has opinions and that’s better than data especially if you are debating; data gets in the way of opinions.
