A Nation of Traffic Is Holding Us Back
The report comes from the Toronto Board of Trade, which gave Toronto a "D" in terms of transportation in its rating.
From The Globe and Mail:
"The rankings in the Board of Trade's annual Scorecard on Prosperity, which measures cities on a number of economic, social and structural indicators, suggest that Canadian cities are already on the brink of crisis.
Not a single Canadian city cracked the top 10 on transportation issues, which measured such factors as commute times, transit ridership, kilometres of existing rail and vehicles per capita."
Board of Trade president and CEO Carol Wilding thinks the report shows the need for a national transit strategy.
