Yes, it is largely political and bureaucratic ineptitude which is to blame, I agree.

The politicians, bureaucrats and powers-that-be in Hamilton clearly don't understand anything about marketing or "branding" (a term they love throwing around). The fact that there is so much establishment support behind Ecklund's laughable waterfalls rebranding scheme is evidence of this.

Ideally, Hamilton would be selling itself as a liveable big city; the problem is that we currently lack those amenities people associate with big city life, like a quality transit system, pedestrian and cycle friendly streets, high density development, etc.
