@policyfrog I'd love it if we had more frequent, reliable, real-time-app-based transit.
Interesting survey, although minor differences in the answers to a hypothetical question. It doesn't change the fact that the main driver by far in real life to relocate or stay is jobs and opportunity, not perceptions about walkability or density. 
@brent_bellamy @MikeFriesen10 @swaff81 There's no magic wand. No easy answers, but focus has to be on economic development. Tax competitiveness, regulation, availability of skilled labour, balanced labour laws, access to capital, marketing competitive advantages like low cost, renewable power
@brent_bellamy @MikeFriesen10 @swaff81 Amenities are great and they're part of the mix. Good infrastructure, good transit, the availability and quality of schools etc are all important. But the overwhelming factor is jobs and opportunity and the jurisdictions that get that right in the future will be the winners.
