Was surprised this afternoon to see Yonge Street in downtown Toronto closed to traffic.
Was there some sort of horrible accident? Had a crime occurred? Were the streets being cleared to practice for a Maple Leaf Stanley Cup parade?
Nope. Turns out it's "Car Free Day."
Or perhaps a better name would be "Anti-Car Propaganda Day."
It seems for lefties, bashing cars is trendy.
But I like cars. They enable us to travel great distances, at great speed in comfort.
And if you don't think comfort is important try riding a horse for three weeks.
What's more cars provide us with freedom, making our lives easier.
So let's hear it for cars!
(This does not mean I endorse bailing out auto makers.)
