      Every once in a while sustainable transport and sustainable city planners
      get a break. Some of these are immediately recognizable as such, for example
      when your city has decided to host some important international event such
      as the Olympic Games, a World Expo, or some kind of international athletic,
      cultural or political event, all of which occasions which may provide the
      funding and vision of the city which is simply not there in the ordinary
      hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. But these "opportunities" may also
      take a far less rosy form, such as a crippling transit strike or even
      natural disaster which may temporarily or permanently wipe out some part of
      the city's normal transportation arrangements. In this article, our friend
      and colleague Todd Litman reports from Canada on one of the more happy
      occasions for transition and innovation. But at the end of the day there is
      always the question, "what is the legacy of all this?"
