Dave Kuruc >> or you can do what we do on James North and put our own benches and flowers out to encourage folks to use the sidewalks and interact with their neighbours.

Dave, the big difference between what you are doing and what the city is doing comes down to right and wrong. Your benches are paid for from your own hard work, while city benches are paid for by theft and coercion. Therefore, no matter what nice things the government tries to do for people of Hamilton, they can't change the fact that the genesis of it all, is violence.

Merideth >> Things I would like to see: ...

How do you propose to pay for all of these things?

Rusty >> How to get more folks to come downtown. What attractions to put in place.

People will come downtown as soon as the government gets out of the way. Downtown Hamilton receives more taxpayer money than any area of the city and all it has done is to drive real wealth creating activities far, far away. If you really want to plant the seeds of success for downtown Hamilton, these seeds must be able to grow good fruit...

Luke 6:45 (King James Version)

45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

As long as Hamilton insists on taking money that comes from theft it will not produce good fruit...

Luke 6:43 (King James Version)

43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
