Contrary to popular belief, there is still lots of parking available. I shop downtown often and have yet to have issues with homeless people. Except one time I was sitting on a picnic table on Govt Street during the summer, and likely a homeless individual sat next to me and explained how the government was brainwashing all of us through chem trails... but besides that, nothing really.

When my daughter was a teen she was a volunteer down at the cruise ship terminal and the folks all dressed up in "Victorian" clothing. Sorry, I had a giggle thinking of the homeless doing that, bad bad me.

I would pay to see councilors greeting tourists, while dressed as historical figures. Isitt as Sir John A McDonald. You want a vibrant downtown? That's the ticket right there. I will 100% support a car-free Government Street if it features Sir Ben A. greeting people in character.
