Fuddy-Duddy report is ‘inefficient’
RE: HAMILTON’S RATED A REAL FUDDY-DUDDY (MAY 10)
How can a diverse country such as Canada have a report listing only 13 cities as being national?
In 2016 there were 50 Canadian cities with populations over 100,000. So let us have a factual report in order to analyze this problem. Comparing Toronto and Vancouver to Saskatoon and St. John’s is not realistic.
If this report is designated to improve mobility and transportation options for teenagers then make it a logical assessment. Compare land size with population to the public transportation options makes more sense.
Hamilton Spectator, you just sensationalized this inefficient report by allocating it to the front page. It was a missed opportunity to investigate why only 13 cities were in the report that compared Toronto, Montreal and Calgary (population in the millions) to Quebec City and Hamilton (in the half millions) to St. John’s (109,000) which is only the size of Guelph. In this time of LRT discussions, The Spec unfortunately dropped the ball on this article on public transportation and how it affects our youth. Sheila Drury, Mount Hope
