You said this:

I am moving up the mountain from the core. I do not work downtown nor will I be visiting it often once I move.

Then you said this:

Good luck with your redevelopment since I'm the demographic you wish to attract to the core.

I've seen this before - people who say they are leaving the core or never lived there, and express no interest in visiting again, act like they're god's own gift to downtown, while speaking against improvements.

What demographic do you refer to? Because I or any number of other here could make the same statement, that we're who post-industrial Hamilton is trying to attract.

And, although I too left Hamilton to live in Burlington on a quiet two way street with bike lanes, humbly, I'm trying to visit the Hammer for Farmer's Market and other downtown stores I have grown to like, and even continue getting haircuts from the nice lady that's been cutting my hair for 10 years. Only to find unnavigable construction blockages, and articles in the spec that you guys want to take my e-bike away from me.

Responsible productive professionals, who contribute yet live with a small footprint, are becoming collateral damage.
