"I'll gladly give the FF to the suburbs if they repay Hamilton for all the sewers, roads, highways and water lines that we've built for their sprawl over the past 30 years. Hamilton would be filthy rich."

Let's not forget that every development in the suburbs since 1974 had to be approved by Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Council a majority of whose members came from the old city. Hamilton always had the power to restrict sprawl, stop downtown-killing box stores and malls like Lime Ridge and Eastgate. It didn't.
