Lewyn on Sprawl in the U.S. and Canada

LewynMichael Lewyn (Touro) has posted Sprawl in Canada and the United States on SSRN.  Here's the abstract:

The purpose of this article is to show that, in Canada as in the United States, government regulation promotes sprawl through anti-density zoning, minimum parking requirements, and overly wide streets. However, Canadian cities are less "sprawling" than American cities- perhaps because at least some of these regulations are less onerous than in the United States.
