I disagree. This is a place to be heard. Who better to hear from than the people who live here. Your argument is essentially argumentum ab auctoritate which leads to a logical fallacy.

As an example, one way streets are not bad because world wide authorities say they are. As has been pointed out on this site numerous times, there are ample good authoritative reasons to use or not one way streets. Practically and without any authority there are obvious advantages - and disadvantages

There are many may people who have lived in Hamilton for many many years who love one way streets. There are people who have always hated them. That makes them neither right nor wrong. But their views should not be dismissed because they are not "authorities."

Calling someone who loves, likes or simply prefers one way streets names, or dismissing them as above, adds nothing to the debate.

I do agree that the city needs to use the best options tried and true.
