Mayor Bratina quoted in The Hamiltonian: "[I] have now completed the four year term with the City of Hamilton in a true renaissance. Everything you can measure is moving on the right path, and everywhere you look you see progress." If the self-congratulatory mayor means Hamilton looks post-medieval, then he's correct.

What a pathological lack of insight into how his term in office degraded Ward 3. The meth lab raid at 803 Cannon St. E. is the tip of the iceberg. Ward 3 is now the poster child for urban blight, with our crowning carbuncle, Tim Hortons Field. 23% unemployment and no infrastructure to support the stadium.

And let's remember his stellar performance during the urban chicken debate. Niagara Falls, Guelph, and Brantford all allow urban poultry as part of their food security plan. But Hamilton has no food security plan -- almost all its food is trucked in with just-in-time delivery. No emergency back-up supplies. Clever management. Roll on, December 1.
