The way I see it. LIUNA bought the Lister because they thought they could get the federal building in there. Now that did not happen. Why did LIUNA not plan for the possibility of this and develop a plan B?

Why must the city taxpayers have to foot the bill for LIUNA's poor business decisions?

If the city did not openly announce that they were willing to buy the property perhaps some private developers would have come forward. LIUNA would love to dump this on Hamilton taxpayers at a profit because the know that a private developer is not as desperate for a deal.

Also, the last thing the downtown needs is more subsidized housing. Walking through the downtown you are given the impression that everyone in Hamilton is either on welfare or on crack.
