Personally, my ideal configuration would be full Complete Street treatment with 2-way and bike lanes on King east of Queen (and TWINO from Queen to Dundurn), 1-way + LRT on Main, and Cannon stays as-is with the addition of North-side parking.

Then there's a 2-lane 1-way synced-light corridor in each direction across the city (Cannon/Queen/King westbound, Main eastbound) a complete downtown King Street for all modes of slower traffic, an LRT on Main, and the Cannon cycle track. Something for everyone.

Then get rid of the 1, 5-9 buses and rebuild them as local short-loop routes that rendezvous with their nearest LRT stops instead of going downtown. And run a second LRT down the Clairmont Access to the Hamilton General and then alongside the existing rail lines to the James North station, with a nice transfer platform built at Main at Victoria.

But of course, we've already planned the B-line on King, so I'll take that in a pinch.
