There's many who's still upset about that bottleneck, after all these years. Even upset at James Street North, too.

I am reminded of a public meeting at city hall in 2013 or 2014 about ... streets? Anyhow, an angry middle-aged man stood up to denounce the changes downtown, citing the mess that had become of James North since the reversion to two-way traffic.'

For years, he loved to go to his favourite Portuguese restaurant on James North. He would drive in quickly and always find a parking spot right in front. But now! He never goes there any more ... the parking spaces are always full! And the traffic is slowed down by cars and pedestrians! It's terrible! And now the city wants to do this to more streets?

He was pretty angry about how all these people on the streets were destroying commerce downtown for people like him.

My point? There is a large, angry demographic comprised of people who are able to spout transparently nonsensical justifications of the status quo.
