how much is it costing Hamilton - in terms of fewer jobs, more unemployed people, and a diminished tax base - to retain its walkability-destroying system of one-way, urban thoroughfares?

Bingo. This has always been my main point. We are sacrificing so much. Missing so much opportunity. Just so we can get across town 2 minutes quicker. King used to be our retail backbone, and can be again...James is proving that these old street walls can sure be cleaned up and given new life. Imagine the years of renovation, construction and new business opportunities that could begin to take shape on King from the 403 to the Delta? Phenomenal that we're willing to sacrifice that entire stretch of our heart for a couple of minutes...possibly even less.
