I just found this video of the Grand Street bike lane in NYC via Newamsterdamize and really would love to see some like this in Toronto. First candidate, IMO, is redoing College street like this. Remove the recessed parking (or whatever the real name for that is that collects all the snow), and reinstall it like this.
Yes, I know, you're still in the door zone if you're not careful. That said, it is still an improvement on being in the door zone with a lane full of automobile traffic behind you waiting to run you down when you hit the ground.
The green paint is a really nice touch as well.
