An Increase in Trips, But Leveling the Auto Volume

I agree with Stephen on this one. It's silly for Canadian liberals to say that if we encourage transit, it allows us to increase the traffic volume. I do believe that we can increase trips by building transit and livable communities. We can do more with less space. There's also no more room for expanding roads, so we need to increase the capacity of the surface roads we have, the easiest way being with transit.

Yeah, well... I'm voting for the NDP candidate in my riding, Ottawa West-Nepean. Incidentially, when I got home from Carleton U. today, I noticed a lot of signs for former Liberal MP David Pratt in my neighbourhood (he's the Liberal candidate).

Why the f**k would the Liberals believe this? St├ęphane Dion has a dog named after the Kyoto Protocol!!
