We definitely need more trees, green roofs, etc. But realize that Hamilton is far from changing its reputation from being steel city. The real problem is that Dafasco effectively owns Hamilton, and when people think of Hamilton, they think evil, flame-throwing, filling the skies with smoke. The pollution spewing out from that factory is what has effectively killed Hamilton's core, literally resulting in increased cancer rates. This is why LRT has not happened for decades. Because the City/ Dafasco don't want to face the pressure to either shut down or clean up their operations that would inevitably come with new residential developments. Too many interests, and big money tends to win.
