Great piece Joey. I have no interest in getting into the 'what-if' scenarios of the casino issue, but you're right - we all live here and need to work together for the growth and success of our city, our neighbourhoods, our business districts etc....

Your sentiments have also been echoed very nicely by Ryan McGreal and Martinus Geleynse.

I was pleased to see the wonderful staff report on LRT/complete streets brought forward this week, and the bike sharing plan released as well. These types of issues are far more crucial to the growth and livability of Hamilton than whether we move our casino to a different neighbourhood or not.
We need all the engaged citizens and forward-thinking minds to be helping push the old city hall machine forward with these types of initiatives that have been proven around the world to transform cities and improve the quality of life. While some may disagree on a casino, let's work together on the many, many issues we agree on in moving Hamilton forward.
