Well my advice may be contrary to the Highway Traffic Act but when I'm on Cannon or Wilson I ride in the left lane. This way I'm closer to the drive and more likely to in his field of vision. As The highway Traffic stands on a one like these the 'fast' lane is right next to the side walk and that is just insane. I've asked several of my driving friends what the 'fast' lane is on cannon and get a multitude of answers the most common on being 'the one with least traffic in it'

Given some of the driving i've seen on cannon I'm not sure that making it 2 way would actually make it any safer for cyclists. Drivers in hamilton seem to view cyclists in much the same way that drivers did in Toronto 20 years ago (i was bike courier for 10 years in toronto ). As much as 2 way streets may help, it will still take some 'realignment' of drivers attitudes
