I had the chance to visit Ottawa recently. They have a lot of 1 way streets, but they are fundamentally different:
- 2 lanes maximum
- 1 carpool lane shared with buses and cyclists
- ABSOLUTELY no synchronized stop lights
- sidewalks along major streets are 3 times as wide as Hamilton's
- parking lane
- trees provide a buffer between curb and sidewalk.

My credentials are irrelevant. I am a tax paying citizen that wants positive change in the downtown. I am open to reasons why any of the above points should not be implemented in the downtown immediately.
