This is what I know...

I live downtown and work downtown. I walk, cycle or bus it most places I need to go. (Sometimes I rent a car to go out of town.) I walk on lots of different streets, some of those streets are one-way and some are two-way. Here's what I see: the streets that are two way (yellow line down the middle) with curbside parking are nice to walk on, even when the sidewalks aren't all that wide, they even have lots of businesses doing well. The streets that are one way, even with wide sidewalks are not nice to walk on and aren't doing that well. King Street in International village isn't that bad but it may as well be two way, cars have to move slowly so there's no point in it being one way any more.

So I know what I see and what I feel when I walk around my beloved downtown, and I remember when James was a nightmare and there were no businesses and I see and feel how healthy it is now and for me (see my username) it really is a no brainer.
