A red light too long for Quebecor

Quebecor writer complains that the traffic light at Pie-IX and Henri-Bourassa makes drivers wait too long, with a claim inside that it’s deliberately set to frustrate drivers and keep them out of the city. Fluidity of motor traffic is understood here to be the general good while public transit and pedestrians are simply obstacles to be wished away.

What kills me is that, in a car, a person is in a bubble – presumably comfortable, warm, listening to whatever sound source they prefer – yet they have no patience for those of us outside trudging through the weather. We’re the ones that have to get out of their way, tabarnak.
