Yes, exactly. They seem to do all these little things right. I understand why so many people are fed up with our one-way streets. Because they are highways. Yet the 3 cities that are probably the poster-children for livability, cycling and pedestrian safety in North America are: Portland, Montreal and Vancouver. And all 3 have way more one-way streets than us. But they are complete streets, not freeways. Portland and Montreal are both on record as having cycling advocates push for more one-way streets in order to allow for the removal of more car lanes and create wider and safer 2-way cycle paths. Hamilton needs to be careful before we go and turn one-way freeways into 2-way freeways. Once that happens, wave bye-bye to any hope for complete streets.
