Just in case Jason's article leaves any ambiguity, Open Streets Hamilton had hoped to use James from King to the waterfront. However, they were told early in their planning process that they would not be able to use any part of James north of Burlington or south of Cannon. Apparently the police and the HSR objected to closing those parts of James to automobile traffic. I imagine that the HSR didn't want to have to reroute the Cannon bus where it turns left from Cannon onto James. I'm not sure if it ever occurred to them that Open Streets might be happy to make an exception for HSR buses.

It is beyond my powers of reason to explain why the single block of James between Burlington and Guise could not be closed to car traffic.
