The plan justifies maintaining two eastbound lanes on York so it can continue to serve as an eastbound through-traffic corridor, and recommends against converting Main Street to two-way because Main has to accommodate eastbound traffic diverted from a converted York Boulevard.

I love that circular reasoning.

Personally, I'd be satisfied with the compromise approach of providing a single one-way thoroughfare going through town (Main, the Cannon-Queen-King route, and Victoria/Wellington) and converting the rest to two way. It wouldn't be perfect, but I think it would preserve the things the traffic engineers desire while allowing the majority of the city to be rehabilitated. But the two way streets should be actually two way, not this ludicrous 1.5 approach.
