Interesting poll results. Anecdotely in my interactions outside my bubble, especially with people who "never go downtown" this is what I've heard. The conservative controlled media drum beat, seemingly based on ideology, regardless of the facts, prior to the vote to maintain the pilot set up last December, seems to be peoples' preconceived belief/frame. Their truthiness (since the facts show they have been a success while limiting impacts on the all mighty motorist).

Thirty per cent of people who participated in the interactive voice response poll by landline or cellphone said they do support the infrastructure downtown, while 13 per cent weren’t sure.
The numbers were similar when the 1,000 poll participants were asked if they would support expanding Calgary’s bicycle network to the suburbs, with 55 per cent of respondents opposed, 31 per cent in favour and 14 per cent didn’t know. ...
What's even more interesting is the quotes from mayoral candidates.
