We have a particular problem here if you want to go Southbound.
Let's say you are on King. (To go South, you are looking for a left hand turn).
Because of the one ways, this may be necessary if you want to use Main to backtrack to a destination you are looking for. Or maybe you simply need to get to a destination such as St Joes which is in the South end.
Starting at the entrance to downtown, we have:
So of the 14 cross streets, only 5 give full access southbound from King. We couldn't even get the one-way grid right which ideally would have alternating streets one after another. We see them doubling up - two sequential streets going in the same direction. Ask any visitor to Hamilton how they feel about getting around. It is a nightmare for them.
Going South if you are starting from Cannon is even worse - with Jackson Square being totally in your way. It's just a horrible place to navigate unless you've spent years perfecting your craft. We need to become more attractive immediately - we can't afford to ask newcomers to spend years "getting used to it". Our economic future depends on it.

I vote down for offensiveness and up for humour. I cast no votes based on my level of agreement.
