@ Henry and Joe

Could you elaborate on what you mean by node-based and node-influenced?

Hating Hamilton is a religion; to the point where there can be a bit of a comradery associated with beating down Hamilton. That has to stop. Hamiltonians, in general, are to blame for our current image. We do little to exuberate pride about the vast uniqueness to our city. We have a beautiful escarpment that you can admire as you travel up the "mountain", a waterfront to envy, a state-of-the-art medical university. But we're known for filth and poor people.

A few hours in Toronto, London, Mississauga or Brampton and you will find an equally filthy street; yet none of these cities have the image problems Hamilton has.

Things that help Hamilton's image: City logo redesign "H", "Live" campaign, "City of Waterfalls" (excluding awful YouTube video).
