Bay is easily the worst snarl for wayfinding in the city. It doesn't just screw up cyclists, it screws up everybody. I mean, even think about the King West corridor during the bus-lanes - if their customers came up Cannon, they'd have to do a weird zig-zag to use that wonky U-turn road onto York and then turn right on Caroline.

2-way Bay has been needed for years and years, bike lanes or no. Failing a bike-lane on 2-way Bay, I'd take a contra-flow lane on York west of Bay and then a proper complete-street 2-way conversion of Hess North.

That and find some way to hook the Wilson lanes into King William and make King William into a sort of "cyclists proxy for King Street" since biking on King Street is suicide but Hunter and Cannon are too far if you're going to a destination on King. King William's traffic is slow-enough, just get it 2-way for the whole length and throw down some sharrows markers to make it clear for everybody.
