Unfortunately, Bob's second point about Hamilton's lack of a viable tax base is true. It is worrisome that our largest employers are now government (ie. health care and post-secondary ed.). It will be very difficult to expand the tax base in the foreseeable future. This is not necessarily insurmountable, but it does need to be recognized. Yes, money was found for Red Hill, but then there were vested interests involved weren't there? A level of political and community will that Hamilton has never seen before will be needed push through these changes.
