@davidsfawcett,

There are two "reasonable way[s] to get from east of downtown to west of downtown or the other way around in a car" without taking Cannon, Wilson, Main, or King. They're called the 403/QEW and Linc/Red Hill. In fact, one of the major justifications for the RHVP was that it would reduce car traffic in the lower city.

Two other "reasonable ways to get from east of downtown to west of downtown or the other way around" include driving on two-way city streets (even with two-way conversion, traffic speeds in Hamilton will not likely be slower than in other major Ontario cities) or taking the HSR.

Those of us who live near Wilson and Cannon don't particularly like the idea of having even more traffic dumped in our backyard.
