I could see that argument maybe made for the region running past HAAA where it's narrowest, but the rest of the road? Bond Street in Westdale North is of a similar width and sports parking on both sides of the street. It's close to Churchill Park and GRAllan school, so similarities abound. Drivers have to be courteous and careful passing each other, but they manage. Through traffic would take Herkimer which is wide enough to have those cars pass comfortably, just like Westdale North does with Longwood (which bears a dividing yellow line).

Although I guess by that metric, the speed hump is by the HAAA, so yeah, go speed hump, objection withdrawn. But on the other-other-hand, if traffic throughout the neighborhood was slowed-down by 2-way traffic, the single solitary 1-way stretch past HAAA probably wouldn't see people accelerating that much. Drivers get "velocitized" from fast areas and then keep the speed often as they enter slow areas, so 1-way Charlton-by-HAAA would still fare better if it was surrounded by 2-way streets.
