Understood.... the Hammer has it's problems.... currently. It wasn't always the case however.

This is a step to reverse those issues. If we always do what we've always done, we'll always get what we've always got. This is a different step.

It's still true that Hamilton has many more cultural amenities and a livelier civic life when compared to the suburbs to the east. When's the last time a Burlington resident walked/cycled/public transited to a destination or civic amenity? Not counting a walk after dinner around the block to burn 100 calories and check out the neighbours landscaping.

As far as 'bums and junkies'. I also see them in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and NYC and in any real city. Some might even be former Burlington residents... who knows? It's just there's no place to get crack and panhandle in a 'city' where everyone lives in their 'great room' and automobile.
