An excellent article! Vic very correctly put up a table of the revenues of urban vs. suburban. To complete that picture, we need to look at the costs to the city of providing services to suburban vs. urban households.

In Halifax, Nova Scotia, it was found that the City spent [twice as much money on suburban households].(

I strongly doubt that it is much different in Hamilton. So suburban areas not only contribute less revenue, but have over twice as much spending costs.

Perhaps the taxes should be raised on suburban households to cover these costs.
