My Green City Life

Happy Car Free Day!

Today is Car Free Day! Are there Car Free activities going on where you live? Here in Montreal, part of downtown will be blocked off to cars for part of the day. The area is bounded by but doesn’t include some major streets, and the hours are after morning rush hour and before afternoon rush hour, so the street closure is perhaps more symbolic than trying to affect real change. However, having lived most of my life in a city with public transportation that can be described as poor at best, I still appreciate the gesture.

Car free day? Poor cars. Think of them, being undriven and unhappy. I embrace the beauty and technological wonder that is modern automobiles… why do you hate them so much? Honest question. People put out pollutants, too… should we all just kill ourselves? Honest questions.
