Absolutely. Everybody knows the Netherlands are a tropical paradise where it never ever snows or rains or has any other inclement weather.

And as for the bus lane - you know the bus lane is a dry-run for the LRT right? LRT will close two lanes on King. And you may note that King is only two lanes wide in the International Village. That means zero car lanes there. That's actually the plan.

Hamilton's 1-way grid was built at the height of the steel boom when there was far more traffic in this city. If you actually compare the number of cars per-lane to every other city in the province, Hamilton's main lanes are completely underused. And that's expensive. It costs a lot of money to maintain those roads. A lot a lot. Like, "hundred million dollar deficit in road maintenance" a lot. And bike lanes are cheaper to maintain than roads because they don't wear out as fast.
