A vibrant downtown

Re: Editor’s Note, Jan.19-25

Read your editorial about Government Street. I agree and support your position. My work and leisure travel has taken me to many places in the world that have vibrant downtown core areas ‘without automobiles’ (Ottawa, Glasgow, Budapest, Belgrade, Frankfurt and many more). I was even in Toronto when they closed the downtown part of Yonge Street for one month in the summer. I presently live in Esquimalt (Fraser Street). It would be great if some of the adjacent municipalities would also stand up and support the concept.
