Some interesting comments, but I'm yet to be convinced. If we're honest we'd admit that a key part of Hamilton's attraction right now is low house prices. I'm sure many people live in the Hammer by 'choice' because the houses are affordable. But this is a backhanded compliment in many ways. House prices are cheap for a reason!

I moved to Hamilton by choice, because it was the best option for my money when I could only afford <$200k for a house. But once I could afford more, I moved to Toronto.

A city needs to attract and retain a diverse cross section of residents. Right now I fear that Hamilton is only 'attracting' residents who have to live there or who can't afford to live somewhere else.
