Main, Wilson and Sherman going two-way would make a massive difference not only in our ability to get around, but in keeping with the goals of walkable, complete streets around the LRT neighbourhoods. We knew we would get some of the old boys club on council try to fight against LRT and water it down so it becomes the 2nd worst system on the continent after Buffalo, but hopefully Metrolinx will simply take 100% control of ALL planning, design and construction and not let our council ruin this once in a lifetime opportunity. Metrolinx is the one making the financial investment. They have full authority to make sure their investment pays off. This is probably the only way any legitimate city-building will take place in Hamilton for the rest of our lives: other levels of government imposing the 21st Century on us, even when we don't want it.
