"I'm originally from Toronto and I have found Hamiltonians to be generally unpretentious, which is great. The friendly bit I'm not so sure about. My coworkers have all been friendly, but on the whole, I find Hamiltonians to be somewhat gruff and surly."

Funny, I noticed the same thing, though I found the surliness to decrease markedly as one traveled east, Corktown having the friendliest folk, Locke being something of a dividing line, Westdale and Dundas being (in my experience) much less welcoming. For this cultural outsider, traveling west was akin to leaving a multicultural city for a Presbyterian small town.
