The Toronto Board of Trade published a study earlier this week that said Toronto has the longest average commute of any major city.
Worse even than Los Angeles.
This caused the Usual Suspects at City Hall to scream for more funding for subways and other mass transit systems.
They seem to forget ex-Ford and Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca's famous quip that he too built mass-transit systems.
The study also showed that Toronto has among the best, if not the very best, score when it came to education and intelligence of its work force.
The obvious conclusion, which apparently isn't obvious enough for said Usual Suspects, is that - for whatever reasons - smart people choose to drive.
Wouldn't it make sense to make it easier, not harder, for smart people to do what they want?
Remember this when the civic elections roll around this fall.
