I would add to this list:

King street from Westdale to James - We have lost a lane here already to construction and this has proven that there is no impact to traffic. WHat better way to try to bridge the gap between McMaster and the core than by putting a proper bikeway link.

Regarding two way bike lanes on one way streets: 1. This is the easiest way to make cycling directly to a destination easier. Detours that are inconvenient for cars becomes doubly so for cyclists when your destination is not favourably located in terms of the one-ways. We need more contra flow bike lanes (king william comes immediately to mind) 2. WIth proper signals, the danger could be greatly reduced if not eliminated. As Kenneth said above, just take a quick boot around Montreal to see how it could work. On a major one-way artery, the bikeway would be physically separated, and at intersections, the cyclists would have their own signal. Turns on red could be prohibited when entering or leaving a bikeway street.
