It was awesome. It's amazing how great downtown and Winnipeg can be when people come together like this.

I am picking up on your sarcasm here...

This reminds me of something I saw on Colin Fast's (Policy Frog's) Twitter feed yesterday:

Haha, "it's disgusting". One can almost hear your voice there. What do you think is supposed to happen when there's 20,000 people downtown and our team wins?

Sarcasm/contempt are all I have let for the P&M debate.

I waited years for someone to provide a logical reason for the intersection to remain closed and all I've ever seen is regurgitated nonsense that tries to keep Winnipeg worshipping cars as our only lord and saviour.

The problem is on this thread some posters come up with some totally outlandish statements on a regular basis about why the intersection should remain closed. So when confronted with your sarcasm, it just seems really believable. Now we know.

I know, my friend from Niverville was absolutely furious. Even with speeding through the suburban portions of the city, it took her three minutes longer to get to the Tim's drive through. However, she was not worried that there was a 10 minute wait for the coffee and nor was she concerned about the resulting long idling of the vehicle.

This same thing occurred to me when I happened to be driving downtown during the last playoff game. I was going south on Donald and had to detour a couple blocks to get around the street party, and also drive extra cautiously because there were people crossing all over the place. Obviously this didn't bother me but I knew that all those hockey fans didn't think about how closing streets might effect traffic flow or pedestrian safety (lol). Yet if regular people happen to be crossing P&M while living out their daily non-jets-related lives this is problematic because it will effect commuting times

I had no idea so many people were taking me seriously...

Wait... What if everyone that says they're against it on here are actually being sarcastic? That would explain why all of their arguments are pathetic!!!

I guess I'll just haft to become MORE ridiculous/offensive!

Only solution is to tear down that unsightly bank on the corner and replace it with a Tim's!! Finally some QUALITY for that intersection!

While were at it replace that pointless statue depicting a filthy "person" going to war for their country!! Get a nice golden car altar in there!

Right?

That Venn diagram makes total sense too.
