I meant in the sense that since the suburbs are growing disproportionately, then it follows that car-dependent households are also growing. Which doesn't mean that new downtown residents will have the same need for multiple cars.
I’m not sure that it does. The suburbs are embracing high density development at a rapid rate and, believe it or not, far outpacing the core in that regard.
The big difference between the suburbs and the core is people tend not to complain about the automobile aspect of their lifestyle. It’s embraced, even. Where we see a lot of the complaining is from people who assume suburban residents universally are worse off or negatively impacted by more reliance on a vehicle, and they push the narrative that commuting by car sucks, that it’s inconvenient, etc. The “we need to keep more people from being forced to commute by car into Victoria” movement reflects that sentiment, and we hear it a lot ...from people who don’t commute into Victoria by car.
