As a former Hamiltonian now living in Denver I gotta tell you guys... the truth hurts, and what Dreschel writes might hurt everyones feelings on this messageboard but he's dead on. I'm well aware of the tragic degradation of a once proud downtown and after having made a visit in August I couldn't help feel sad about what it's become today. You need more than a nice fountain and a few shops to attract the crowds downtown. I wanted to show my wife and kids the downtown I once knew but from my quick drive thru next to Gore Park and the adjacent sidewalk I had no desire to get out of the car. It was, to put it bluntly, a freakshow. (It was beginning to be that way 15 yrs ago when I left, and now it's far worse.) So it was off to downtown Dundas for a far less intimidating visit.
