Great post Councillor Bratina.

I am very sceptical that the MIP will be bringing NET NEW PRIVATE SECTOR employment to this city that would have not otherwised occurred. Correct me if I am wrong but are not some of the other MIP tenents just previously moved over from the Mac campus (I am thinking about that UN school or something.)

I have said many times on this website that middle class people and businesses would rather not locate downtown due to the fact that it is dominated by unappealing people and offers nothing for the middle class. Downtown Hamilton (and Hamilton as a whole) will never come back as long as it remains a dumping ground and a butt of jokes (what other city has a halfway house across from an 18,000 seat arena, what other city would even contemplate converting a former best hotel in the city to welfare housing???).

Thank you for standing up for this.
