M.W. Plan, are you new to Hamilton?

The only reason I ask is because of your view that this destruction of the Century sets a dangerous precedent for outright demolition of historical buildings downtown.

If you're new to the city, you should pick up some of the Vanished Hamilton series of books. Or the Gary Evans series "King St" "Hamilton Back Then" etc...

The dangerous precedent was set decades ago when we demolished incredible buildings such as the Birks, old City Hall, all of York Blvd, all of Market Square. Heck, this city was about to demolish the Pigott Building, but ultimately changed their minds.

Poor political leadership and lack of vision for our city has been entrenched since the 50's. We're long beyond the stage of setting precedents.
