Let's not forget that two of 2010's 11 pedestrian deaths occurred in the most walkable zone of the city: James Street between King and King William.

Maybe because people actually walk there?

I would argue that one way streets make traffic more dangerous throughout the whole city. They condition people to expect to drive fast with minimal interference from pedestrians. Take drivers that are used to 50 years of all streets being like that, throw them onto a two way and they will drive slower to be sure, but I'd expect years of experience on fast one ways would affect one's lack of attentiveness and aggression behind the wheel.
