Heartily agreeing with jason and Ted...

More two-way conversions with parking along both sides as a buffer for pedestrians. In Locke St is a prime example of a great pedestrian area -- the speed limit is 50km/hr over most of it, but the hustle and bustle of pedestrians crossing, and cars parking, interspersed with well-situated stop signs and a ped-activated stoplight help to calm the traffic down to 30km/hr or so.

Ottawa St. is a pretty good example of how you can "have your cake and eat it too"...single lane of traffic in each direction, ped-activated stoplights along a vibrant commercial street. And I think it's still able to serve as a truck route. We don't need 5 lanes across all going in the same direction...total lunacy, and terrible for businesses and communities.
