Jason >> We don't have millions of residents and we don't have as huge an influx of people coming to work everyday.

The ONLY reason why downtown Hamilton is not currently a hub of economic and cultural activity is because of our weak local politicians, who have allowed themselves to be kicked around for decades by citizens and industry.

When this city realizes that strong governments create strong cities, Hamilton will start slapping Toronto, Vancouver and Manhattan around something silly. Pay down debt, raise taxes, repair all the roads, fix the sidewalks, push out industry that has destroyed the waterfront.

In fact, if you own property in Hamilton, I would look to start buying more, because once City Hall finds its legs, Hamilton's cheap land values will be no more.
