Not sure if you caught it in Saturday's Spectator, but as unlikely an urban champion as former regional chairman Terry Cooke came out in defence of converting Hamilton's streets back to two way:
Hamilton council should summon the political courage to simply eliminate our anachronistic system of one-way streets. No more public-policy baby steps and enough already with pilot projects like the now three-year-old conversions of James and John streets.
It's time to simply abandon an idea of the 1950s that serves only as a deterrent to restoring livable neighbourhoods in the heart of Hamilton.
The funny thing is, for some reason Cooke felt the need to turn to the Louisville Courier-Journal to find a quote about the damaging effects of one way streets. All he had to do was visit RTH to find similar ideas expressed.
