Toronto’s Future: Car Lanes Or Planter Boxes?

Deborah K. Vick


As soon as on a time, I would have labeled this a “Friday Rant.”

Potentially I’m older and wiser?

Or possibly I’m just more mature and slower…

As soon as on a time, I’d have filmed this video even though exceptionally agitated, ranting, and with no area for anybody’s opinion, other than my possess.

The truth is: I have no concept what this city is going to glimpse like in twenty many years, so while I personally feel it’s insane to choose away a lane of website traffic on a major street to install planter boxes, I could possibly be in the minority here.  I don’t forget when they set up planter bins on King Road East so that automobiles couldn’t shift all over these obsolete, decrepit streetcars that congest the downtown main extra than a vehicle at any time could.  I just about blew a gasket when that transpired.

In a perfect earth, maybe there would be no cars and trucks.

Or, in a properly logical and purposeful planet, there would be cars and trucks, but they would all be electrical.

But as this city evolves, I will no lengthier seem amazed when I see a lane of visitors has been eliminated to put in planter bins, even if I don’t concur with it.

Do not get me improper: I really do not think that any metropolis councilor member has a “plan” for a ten years down the street, enable on your own a few or four.  I think that each conclusion is produced with tomorrow in head, and not future year.  And while I would like to believe that the selection to get away a lane of site visitors to put in planter packing containers had absolutely almost nothing to do with a inexperienced city councilor lamenting, “This city does not have enough ferns,” I just cannot be absolutely sure.

But I’ll hold an open up head heading ahead.  Er, a a lot more open up mind…

Have a fantastic weekend, every person!
