Tell me you wouldn't trade Main Street Hamilton for something like Blvd Des Maissoneuve in Montreal?

While Maissoneuve has nice bike lanes, it's not my model for what Main Street could be: it's a relatively dead street for much of its run through downtown. If I'm walking, I'll almost always skip up or down one block to walk on a more lively street.

One-way traffic is only one reason that Maissoneuve is deadish, of course - but it certainly contributes to the not-a-normal-street feel.

The question for me is not "why two way?" it's "why one way?" I need a compelling argument to continue our fifty-year failed experiment.
