Yes, the Main 2-way debate is going to be a difficult one.

That said, I have confirmed from Jason Thorne (when I met him at the supercrawl meet "Let's Talk LRT" yesterday at 5:30), that the LRT plans are able to proceed with either a Main 1-way or 2-way, so it is in theory possible to postpone that debate, although various different people would prefer something be decided prior.

For the purposes of the LRT advocacy which has to encompasses wards even outside ours, I have to be neutral and listen to all sides, as other people in the advocacy also agree with them (keeping Main 1-way).

In our advocacy, it is also our goals we all agree LRT proceed quickly on time (2017 procurement of contracts, 2019 construction) to make it pretty much cancellation-resistant. Even if we disagree on some details amongst ourselves -- like the controversial topic of Main 1-way and 2-way.

Jason Thorne seems to very well understand the sensitivity of this issue, and confirmed the city will be doing computerized traffic modellings of all possible solutions.

I certainly understand all sides, even if I have difficulty agreeing with some sides, and longtimers already know where my preferences lie for Main St. But I now have to listen since I'm working with people who sometimes disagree with me on the nitty-gritty bits.
