"The trucks that are making deliveries to and from the local businesses are not the problem. Please pick a spot on cannon, set up a chair, sit with a coffee for an hour and watch the traffic. The majority of these trucks are not local traffic no matter how thinly you want to stretch the definition."

Seriously, unless you actually knew what these trucks were carrying and specifically where they taking it to or bringing it from, how can you possibly make such a statement?

When, exactly, does "to" become "through"? Do you really believe that trucks are leaving the QEW and driving all the way through the city to get to the 403 or vice versa? A quick search of google maps shows me that it actually takes about 5 minutes longer to go through the city than around and that's by car not truck.

I'm all for getting trucks out of downtown but if Hamilton is going to have an industrial area on its harbour then there has to be a viable way for trucks to access it when they're coming from, or going to, the west.
