I was in your neighbourhood two nights ago and was extremely impressed AND extremely jealous of the chokers, the dead ending of Burlington St at James, the bumpouts etc.... this is exactly what world class cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Portland and Montreal do all through their walkable, dense neighbourhoods. Hamiltonians need to get over themselves. The safety of children and seniors walking and biking on their own neighbourhood streets is far more important than a few parking spots or the odd dead-end forcing drivers to go a whopping one block out of their way to go home (and that's only true of the folks who live immediately on Burlington, west of James).

It won't be easy, but it's absolutely necessary for Hamilton to go through these growing pains back into a real city after decades of no vision and freeway-only planning principles ruining our city.
