Jason Leach is cheerleader for theoretical ideas. Better study the budget and figure out what is affordable, Portland example notwithstanding. Hamilton in Canada is not Portland in USA, economic engine of the world (at present).

1) Hamilton is a city in name only. Not dense enough as Jason reminds us above. Just another suburb save a few blocks in core. Storefronts barely viable anywhere but in BIA's. Bulldoze the whole thing!

2) Hamilton has no viable tax base. Steel is dead/dying (or should be as it would release redevelopment per US rustbelt). Rest is services, government and overtaxed residential (all dependant on primary). Dormitory town. Bulldoze the politicians!

Then again, politicians just reflect the voters.
