Your last paragraph is NOT true.

I remember walking along the north side of Main Street towards downtown and thinking: "Maybe I'll stop in at Wimpy's and get a burger for supper." I could not cross Main Street because when the light at Dundurn turned red, the traffic turning right onto Main Street from Dundurn made it impossible to time my crossing (five lanes) without getting killed.

Walking down to Locke to cross at the light and walking back to Wimpy's was not appealing. So, Wimpy's did not sell a burger to me that night.

Our one-ways are bad for business, bad for residents and bad for transit planning. Also, if you think about it, how many times have you had to backtrack while driving in the downtown area because of the "efficient" one-way system.

The one-way system has to go.
