It's certainly worth giving a voice to the outsider; they often provide the most perspicacious view of any situation. That being said, the Spec's decision to give voice to a guy who's been in the downtown once in the last ten years does seem a bit ridiculous, I have to admit.

The fact that the Spec printed only negative responses likely indicates that the reaction to Cooke's piece was in fact overwhelmingly non-supportive. This would not surprise me in the least. I do quite firmly believe that Hamiltonians en masse are quite staunchly opposed to a reversion to two-way streets. While it is almost assuredly the more enlightened decision, I don't think it would be a very popular one (at least initially).
