"And here is a newsflash for ya: children of all ages live in downtown neighbourhoods including Toronto and Hamilton."

True. Though in Hamilton's case at least, they do tend to be less numerous.

Going off Ec Dev’s 2011 Downtown Hamilton Profile (which uses 2006 Census stats), 17% of downtown residents are 19 or under (compared to 25% citywide). That’s around 1,400 individuals.

The most anomalous segment of the population appears to be the 20-34 age bracket, which makes up 29% of the demographic (around 2,500 individuals), compared to 19% city-wide.

So Downtown Hamilton has markedly more individuals in their prime child-rearing years than the rest of the city, but considerably fewer children per capita.
