I'm sure Richard Florida would get a chuckle out of reading letters to the editor from Hamiltonians telling him to get a "reality check" on issues pertaining to urban revitalization and public design.
After all, Hamilton is clearly the envy of urban centres all over the world. If it ain't broke, don't fix it - right?
I could understand taking some so-called expert advice if we had a sub-par downtown and our city streets weren't filled with people shopping, dining and entertaining at all hours of the day.
Tell the huge lineup of international companies clamouring to locate their offices here that we should make changes to how our city functions and develops.
We've already blown past Montreal and have Toronto in our sights as cities that we're leaving behind in the 21st Century economy. Things have never been better in Hamilton!
Reality check, you say?
