Though a huge supporter of LRT in Hamilton, I'm still skeptical about which route to choose. Each has their pros & cons.

I think after all is said and done, I would prefer to see 2-way LRT along Main, with King St (and Cannon/Wilson) being converted to 2-way. But again, I'll keep an open mind until the Metrolinx BCA.

You're right-on about major intersecting streets needing parking, too. Wentworth, for whatever reason, lost ALL of it's street parking when they re-did the street a couple years ago. All those Cathedral kids (who lost their p-lots to portable classrooms) are now forced to park in residential areas.

One thing I've thought about recently is little parking 'nooks' (don't know the actual term). They're pretty much small -usually free- lots every couple hundred meters beside a row of commercial buildings. They're everywhere along the Bloor West village of Villages (esp The Kingsway), and can even be found in Hamilton around Main/Ottawa-Kenilworth area).
