Local Motion editor Dave Meslin in the Globe and Mail
'A lot of people see voting in an election as their one and only way to make a difference in the city - I check a box every four years and then I watch the action unfold until I can vote again. But it's the time between elections when normal people can have the most impact. If we have road tolls in Toronto, it won't be because politicians just decided one day that tolls are a good or bad idea. It'll be because of the community itself. A city counsellor or mayor might become the champion of the cause, but the hard work was done much earlier.'
