We asked: What would you do to improve Toronto?

Toronto. First, I would revamp the Gardiner Expressway. As it is, it is very inefficient and crumbling. This should have been done back in the early 1980s and now it is definitely time to take definitive action.

Second, stop the mega condo building on the waterfront. David Miller opened up the building to all interested parties and now it’s looking very disorganized and far too congested downtown.

Thirdly, even though they were once great modes of transportation, get rid of the streetcars — they are horrible traffic clogs.

Re: Smell test: The Jarvis bike lanes (Oct. 1)

Toronto. I was disappointed in learning the city spent $59,000 on a bike lane, which, without repaving the asphalt, is just too dangerous and difficult to be used by most bike riders, especially since there is already a bike lane on Sherbourne Street. Wouldn’t it be wiser to spend this money for repaving the bad surface of the bike lanes on Sherbourne Street? At least we would have one functional bike lane instead of two bad ones.
