I recently heard an anecdote via Herman Turkstra, apparently Mr. Desjardins the old street baron of Hamilton could easily get from his own home to the city hall parking lot on Jackson street as the first streets that turned one way as part of his pilot project.

Could it be that Hamilton ended up with oneway streets because of one mans desire to get to and from home on the mountain quickly in his car? you know instead of one many loving to walk to work and buying a home close to city hall?

What would have happened if Mr. Desjardins actually preferred downtown to living on the mountain?

makes me wonder... it does...
