I think the idea is an excellent one, though I'm strongly against turning it into an exclusive fundraising type of event. I could support linking it up with fundraising if it was framed differently. Doing it annually or once a month from June to September on a weekend afternoon/evening. Make it routine and expected like the Art-Crawl on James North, so people know its happening and plan for or around it. That could make it a way to celebrate and enjoy the beauty of Cootes Paradise and Hamilton Harbour. Some of us, myself included, are fascinated by the industrial landscape and consider it beautiful in its own way ... admittedly i'm less amused by the pollution emitted, especially the soot that collects on my window sills, etc. I'd love the chance to spend a summer afternoon or evening with my family on the high-level bridge with other like minded people ... it has one of Hamilton's best vistas and is a guilty pleasure to drive across (i always look forward to it).
