Great article. I've been saying this for years: our downtown streets that should be filled with life, business and people are dead freeways. Our family has lived near King and York for 13 years. Guess how many times we've walked along either street? Zero.

How horrible is that. In Toronto people fight over each other and pay through the nose to live near King, Queen, College etc.... We avoid our main streets at all costs.

The fact city hall cares squat about the business environment in their own city tells you all you need to know about Hamilton City Hall culture. As long as their own neighbourhoods are good, they don't care about the rest of the city.

How much more proof do you need of the horrid condition of King to hear that business customers won't cross a single street to shop, yet apparently will pay $ to go underground in Jackson Square and then walk all through that maze of a mall to go to the same store. Amazing.

Bus lane isn't the problem at all. Our urban freeways are. But everyone already knows that. And doesn't care.
