Why can't we close of the area from Wellington to James to everything but bus traffic and make Main from Bay to Victoria 2 way? Wellington is already a multi lane street so it wouldn't need to be widened to accommodate traffic from King onto Main. Also, fix up Victoria down to Cannon so you don't leave an axle behind when getting to Cannon and promote those 2 routes as ways around the core. There are a lot of shops in the 2 lane section of downtown that would do great if this happened, not to mention it would improve the look of the place without having to make major infrastructure changes not to mention the fact that if Main is 2 way for that length, it would slow down traffic making the area more livable which would increase ped traffic which would attract business who want to put money into making nice looking shops/boutiques instead of blank grey wall faces.
