I guess the issue of two way conversion is really not about commercial success, because it doesn't have that much power. It is more about health and safety issues. Which is valid. However, in the case of Barton Street and other two way streets with beautiful storefronts and streetscapes in the city that are failing it must come down to attitude and stigma against them.

The following comment by Jason summed up a rather south end elitist attitude that exists:

"Try convincing a home buyer in Strathcona or Kirkendall that they could get twice the house for the same price north of Barton, east of Wentworth. 99% will say 'no thanks'"
