Heritage in Hamilton was dealt a major blow last week. The Balfour Building is gone.
While there are any number of areas of concern related to its destruction, one that is perhaps most troubling is the lack of leadership shown by our elected officials including, and perhaps most particularly, Mayor Eisenberger.
The building is gone, but the leaders of this city remain.
Will you please agree to attend the City Council meeting on Wednesday night to show our disappointment with our current leaders?
A large showing of engaged but angry citizens from all walks of life and from all parts of the city is an important image for Councillors and the Mayor to see.
This is not a plan generated by radicals. It is a considered action taken by people who are tired of Hamilton's heritage being destroyed as a result of a lack of leadership. We trust that you agree.
We will convene outside of the Albion Room on the second floor of the Hamilton Convention Centre at 6:55 pm. The Council meeting begins at 7:00 pm. We anticipate that your participation will not need to extend beyond 7:15.
