Yes, please lets convert King St to two way, and put and LRT line with it's own rail there, right where is cuts down to two lanes as one enters international village. We'll only have to rip up how much sidewalk and how many trees to facilitate that?

My position remains the same, convert everything but King and Main to two way, but leave those two alone, it's part of highway 8 and there is a need for east west traffic to flow. To anyone advocating Burlington St. for one, it's far away from the major urban areas in Durand, Corktown and Stinson, it's the gloomiest highway around, it's in a state of complete disrepair, and will always be in a state of disrepair due to the heavy industrial traffic that utilizes it, and it is need of a major costly overhaul and most of all, doesn't link to the 403 and cannot link to the 403 without ruining the area around bayfront park.

Mixed use means just that, having a place for car traffic and having a place for slower moving traffic, which a converted Cannon, York/Wilson St and Charlton can provide in spades. Especially if you create a continuous bike route from McMaster innovation park, down Charlton till Ferguson and link up with the Rail Trail as well as Cumberland/Gage Park/Lawrence and eventually to the Red Hill Valley Trail.
