Not sidewalks...walkways

What do you think of when you hear the word “side”?

The sidekick perhaps? You know that character who isn’t the hero (and may not even be in every installment or episode)?

How about that side dish you have to be reminded to order while you’re thinking about your main entre? The garlic mash or rice pilaf that was but an afterthought, it stays on the side before being scrapped, scraped away (because the side is for refuse…)

I'd like to propose that Toronto retires the term "sidewalk" and replaces it with the more intentional "walkway."
