Toronto use bike sensors at their traffic (and now just needs to inform their cyclists about them). These should be a minimum requirement in any Hamilton plan to actuate the traffic lights (something I strongly agree that they should do!). See for more info.

P.S. IMHO, increased use of dedicated turning lanes and real enforcement of parking/no-stopping by-laws could probably do more to improve traffic flow (and safety) for everyone than actuated lights. Check out Charlton and some of the other streets around Saint Joe's at 8:45 on a weekday. The idlers in the no stopping zones cause chaos (and make cycling almost suicidal) but somehow the loss of one-way streets gets the blame. If red light cameras are allowed at intersections, why can't something similar be used to nail the folks who feel it is their right to get cheap parking for a visit to the area. Bring on the tow trucks!!!
