The city wants to protect the Main/Cannon east/west high-speed paired streets, I think. That's why LRT lies on King instead of Main.

Let me show you something:

Hamilton's trucking industry has influence at city hall, and they protect this. This is why Bay Street is one way in defiance of all common sense no matter how much it screws up wayfinding in this city.

Look at King Street - notice that King's involvement with the truck route ends at Queen. That's why LRT goes there - because the trucks are no longer involved where King is too tight for both LRT and automobile traffic.
