I basically agree with what you are advocating for Hamilton in terms of addressing the awful one-way streets in the lower city, but I find your comments about other cities puzzling.

"Toronto and Montreal have vibrant successful urban cores, despite freeways being quite a distance away....perhaps we can learn something and begin to make changes that will allow Hamilton to flourish again."

It's a "long trek" to the Gardiner from downtown Toronto? Really. Toronto still has Richmond and Adelaide as one-way streets designed to move traffic (particularly service vehicles and transport trucks) to and from the downtown core to the DVP.

Montreal has an expressway that runs literally under the downtown core. Crumbling and dangerous, but there nonetheless.
