Mr. Blanchard is a rich man. The people of Hamilton are already poor because so many of our most valuable buildings are in terrible shape. When a building that makes our city valuable is replaced with a building that only makes landlords and developers rich, we are robbed not only of our history and social identity, but we lose more of our already weak power to stand up for ourselves in dealing with the landlords and developers in the future. These people make their money from us and are able to do so because of the city that surrounds their buildings and which was built and is run on our tax dollars.

I fully respect the rights of property owners, but their rights aren't limitless.
