While I don't always agree with Bruce Allen, sometimes he nails a topic so hard he just has to hit gold. Today's CKNW Reality Check on the Sunday car-free days is one of his best.

Here's a sample passage below. Listen to him hit the emphasis on words like car, errands, shopping, etc. like he's trying to explain to Vision what they are.
I don't know about you, but I work all week. The weekend is when I want to get some things done. That usually means hopping in the car, doing a bunch of errands that usually involve a bit of shopping. The biggest turn-off to any shopper is coming up to his favourite retail area, and see the street's blocked off, and a bunch of looky loos strolling around pushing baby strollers, walking their dogs, hanging around the middle of the street and lounging around in coffee shops...
Ouch. Allen's tirade just gets better from there.
You have to wonder if Robertson, Reimer and Vision will ever learn that their social engineering experiments are wearing thin on Joe Public.
Nah, probably not.
