I wouldn't say Canadians are backwards on pedestrians, we (specifically Seattle) are too self-entitled as pedestrians if anything. Pedestrians need to be accountable for their own safety too. I'm not saying we need to crack down in the same way we do with drivers, but staring at a phone while crossing the street (i.e. not being aware of your surroundings and traffic flow) poses a danger not just to the pedestrian but also contributes to traffic and congestion. Be alert, keep things moving, and don't be selfish. I speak as a driver, pedestrian, and cyclist.

Heated and air-conditioned? In the winter, I think I'll be warm enough in the clothes I bundled up in to go outside. It's like heat on the bus...ick. I don't think any gondola I've ever ridden in snowy mountains had heat. In fact, they had vented windows. If it's summer, well how about they just put a few vents in there for a cross-breeze? Just seems like overkill.
Anyway I'm sure I'll go ride this thing once...with a visiting family of four I don't know, half of which will be kids who'll spend the whole ride texting or being obnoxious. :P
