Some people like to ignore this fact so they can be seen as progressive. There's no simple way to get rid of oil consumption, and no easy way to be more "green" without being more dirty at the same time.
If you want to achieve something, I think the only place you can start is in the biggest cities like Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle, New York etc. because for example, people in Maple Ridge, Mission, Abbotsford, Chilliwack have to travel to Vancouver for their jobs, and they can't do that if you take away the cars.
