Here's one from the "good chuckle" files. According to the Spectator, Brantford is a "greener pasture" for Hamiltonians to consider moving to.
Apparently they have "all the amenities of Hamilton" too. Interesting. They're doing one heck of a job hiding them then, since I've been there many times and have never seen a downtown with neat shops, dining and cafes.
I must have missed their massive waterfront with boat tours, trolleys and expansive green space.
I seem to have skipped all of their bustling shopping districts similar to our Locke, Ottawa, Westdale and Concession Street neighbourhoods and totally missed out on the hundreds of acres of Bruce Trail / Dundas Valley-like trails, conservation land and 60+ waterfalls.
C'mon, Brantford. Do a better job of selling yourself.
I'm now expecting that the Spec will do a piece early next week calling Hamilton the "greener pasture" of Toronto. Maybe it wouldn't kill them to rave about our own city if we're going to start doing stories from the census.
After all, many more people left Toronto for Hamilton than the other way in the past five years.
Don't hold your breath waiting for that report, though. Instead, take the family and enjoy next weekend in beautiful, bustling Brantford.
