yes, they would take it elsewhere. But not Vancouver (which has an ARB) or Toronto or Ottawa or Calgary or Montreal or Quebec City or Halifax etc.....

They might be able to take their lackluster project to Brantford or Timmins or North Bay though. It's time for Hamilton to start acting like a big league city again and quit acting like any old half-baked project is better than nothing. Half-baked, lackluster projects pave the way for more of the same. Just like in Toronto, high design and unique ideas pave the way for more of the same.

I realize much of Hamilton's population is satisfied with blobs of stucco dominating the landscape and looking disgusting after 2 winters in this part of the world, but I've got a dream of Hamilton becoming a model city once again. It'll take decades to get to the level of Vancouver or Portland, but we need to start trying. Now.
