The Spectator's Jeff Mahoney is on fire today:
You've heard of Wal-Mart. It's a chain. Around the ankles of locally owned independent business. Around the neck of workers' rights.
Just what we need in Hamilton. More chain.
Need it or not, it's what we're getting. Council voted to give preliminary approval for a new Wal-Mart on Centennial Parkway and the addition of a grocery section at the bit of chain on Rymal Road.
Don't worry. It's only preliminary approval. They'll have to, I don't know, draw up the architectural plans. Let's see now. Gimme that pencil, willya? Hmm. Jot, angle, jot, erase, jot, angle. Ta da. A box. Take that, Frank Lloyd Wright.
It just gets punchier from there.
