Just want to chime in a quick note about one ways in Toronto vs Hamilton.

First of all, Richmond and Adelaide are the only real one-ways in toronto that are comparable to ours and (no surprise) they are among the least vibrant streets in their core.

The one way residentials that you mention in the annex are actually quite efficient at doing what they are meant to do: keep through traffic OFF the side streets. The design of these streets -- where two one ways meet head to head; where you are forced to do unnecessary loops to get through; where some streets end in a false dead end -- this is a very efficient and cheap way to manage traffic through these areas and it's done on purpose. Hamilton could benefit from these ideas, as anyone who lives in durand can attest. Our residential streets easily become through streets and people drive like maniacs where children should be playing.
