I think Hamilton still comes out on top in the extent of its one-way system (before the conversions), certainly ahead of Montreal.

e.g. compare these two maps at roughly the same scale:

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Portland,+OR,+USA/@45.5175475,-122.6735921,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x54950b0b7da97427:0x1c36b9e6f6d18591

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Hamilton,+ON/@43.254397,-79.8798492,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x882c986c27de778f:0x2b6aee56d8df0e21

Portland does have a dense area of one way streets around its downtown west of the river, but it is definitely smaller and it ends pretty abruptly.

Montreal has lots of one-ways, but plenty of two-ways as well:

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Montreal,+QC/@45.5054349,-73.5650615,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x4cc91a541c64b70d:0x654e3138211fefef

I do agree, however, that one-ways don't have to be as unpleasant to pedestrians, shoppers and businesses as many of Hamilton's are!
