Could I ask a couple of questions concerning the transformation of Main E? I am new, so I'm just going to shout out some of the questions that have popped up in my head while listening/reading about the LRT.

If Main St E were to be converted to two-way, how would street parking work?

If we get the LRT on Main AND the two-way traffic, would LRT have a dedicated lane that does not affect traffic (one way?), or would it be the same scenario as the streetcars on Queen/King in Toronto that take both inner lanes going East/West? If there is a dedicated lane, Main would be reduced by a lane, thus reducing street parking, would it not? They don't have extra space to make an additional dedicated lane, so it has to come from what already exists. I ask because I'm hoping it's nothing like the Toronto scenario above. Having lived it, that too is an nightmare.

My apologies if these questions have already been answered in past discussions, but I'm trying to understand the concept better.
