I'm happy the hear I am not the only one who hates the James and John conversion. I used to frequent a few stores and restaurants along those two stretches but have not been on either on since the change and will not be back. Lot's of mountain folks are doing the same. Your desired result backfired. There are lots of places to eat in Hamilton, but I won't be in this area.

As much as I'd like to, I just don't see this panning out. Eating up two lanes on King and changing Main to two way will be the ulimate disaster. Look how bad traffic became on James S. and John S. Jamming up traffic and slowing things down will only make people stay away just to avoid the headaches. And can you imagine if the 403 traffic is rerouted onto York Blvd? it will be backed up past Cootes Paradise. Count me out.

I knew this day would come. The end is near and soon there will be no reason at all to go downtown anymore. Why in the world would I want to make an ordeal of getting from A to B. Let's build the new stadium on the mountain and close off downtown altogether.

This was a wonderful display by the office of the GG. I bet Roland Michaner or George P. Vanier would applaud. This is a heritage issue that deserves to be on the front page.

Here's an idea. Let's build a facility to house the Farmer's Market on the Mountain. Next, a new stadium for the Ti-Cats, and then a new arena for Jim Balsillie to put his hockey team. Voila! No need to go downtown at all. All those who love the two way John and James a can have the whole area to themselves. Carl W. Ambridge

Its not like we want every street in the city to be one way, but the John and James conversions have been a disaster for mountain residents and like many I avoid the area entirely, this is not the way to get people downtown. Locke street for sure is a unique area but it is Main and King that gets people to these special places. They aren't called Main and King just for fun. Carl W. Ambridge
