every single urban expert who has come to Hamilton the last 15 years has said "fix these awful one-way freeways ASAP". Not ONE of them has said, "close off your entire downtown to cars".
Guys like Whitehead and the Speculator purposefully lie to the listeners and try to rile them up with talk of 'no more car access to the 403 via Aberdeen' etc....
Waiting for specific data, but it appears Aberdeen carries the same # of cars as West 5th near the Linc. Having family at West 5th and Linc for many years, I can confirm the 100% green colour shown on Google Traffic maps. It's wide open 24-7. And it has this cross-section after recently being rebuilt:

So, that design is great for ward 8, but not Ward 1?
