OH my you love to use the emotional gut wrenching language. RAPE a city? Really? Come now, what are you really trying to say? If there was a demand for dense liveable downtowns then why did everyone leave? That is exactly what Hamilton had 40 years ago. Oh and even then the dominant demand was for single family homes with yards and space. Not just Hamilton but virtually every other city in North America. People left for bigger nicer single family homes in the burbs. What most of us wanted then, what most of us want today. If you wish to live downtown then do so. It is cheap enough. No one is telling you cannot.

Just how are you being oppressed? Do you even know what the word means or just using it for its emotional appeal? I doubt anyone has told you where you can or cannot live. Those suburbanites you love to whine about are the ones financing the city. Take a look at the value of the average house in Dundas, Ancaster, Stoney Creek or other burbs and compare it to the value a house in the core. Taxes are calculated on the value of the house. That is where the money that fuels the city's budget comes from. They pay they should have a big say in how it is spent.
