Wentworth/Victoria's always the heartbreaker, since you know they'll never change those and it kills me to see those ancient homes ruined by that kind of streetscape, but they're so darned useful as one-way streets.

But yes, I really can't see why the city stubbornly keeps all these side-streets one-way. It just doesn't make any sense.

Main for eastbound, The Cannon->Queen->King corridor for westbound, and Wentworth/Victoria for north/south from Clairmont to Burlington Street. That's it. That's the only "highways" of the city that actually see enough traffic to even begin to justify one-way traffic.

It just makes no sense for the navigational and safety headache of one-way streets on all these secondary roads. Whether or not we like the big urban highways, at least we can understand why they exist as such - they're highways. But Bay isn't a highway... it's just... dumb.
