I was lost with this council when they began to ask if "bad @#$%^&* language" was a source of downtown stagnation. The sidewalk on King Street (Upper James to Bay St.) looks like the floor of a long neglected stockyard. Every time I go there, I want to burn my shoes when I get home.

Yes you can back street your way across town, but if you want to do business with a store on one of the one way streets you had better know Exactly Where it is or you will miss it. As one CBC Radio personality stated, ' One way traffic (in Hamilton) moves too quickly & is too heavy to look for a street address or a business sign.' I think she likened it to 'the running of the bulls'. You just get pushed along at headlong speed. This applys to bus traffic on these routes as well as cars.

Is the idea really to get people Out of There as quickly as possible? That's one heck of a bad way to utilize a City core!
