[Toronto] City 'at war' with drivers, councillor says

'Secret' move to ban cars: Removing bus bays will clog traffic, Sutherland argues

James Wallace and Mark Gollom

National Post                                         September 10, 2001

"Transit activists at city hall are waging a secret war against motorists to force them off the road, a councillor has charged.

"There is a radical agenda in play and it's being implemented to the detriment of the City of Toronto," said Paul Sutherland, councillor for Ward 33 (Don Valley East)."The thinking is, you make it so congested and so bad to drive on the road then you'll take public transit................."

"............proposal to eliminate 1,300 bus bays across the city..............."

"................will mean traffic will get held up, across the city, every time a bus makes a stop.........."

"...............designed to basically make the roads more congested....................."

"Mr. Sutherland argued the proposal is the latest example of pro-transit policies that are pursued by car-hating downtown councillors and the TTC for ideological reasons, not because they contribute to a balanced transportation plan for the city.................."
