I suspect investments of the Pan Am sort, though, are to increase outside investment (profits) in Hamilton, thereby increasing the availability of funding for other municipal needs at a later date. I don't think Council ignores social issues/projects that need municipal funding; I just think that they are torn by other issues/projects requiring funding as well (e.g. infrastructure) and try to balance those needs with ways to make money to pay for all of them.
