Hey Really, I agree that saving this building should be a priority. Interesting that the bloated banks on Bay St will never back the financing of redevelopments in Hamilton. Harry Stinson's failed attempts in this city has just higlighted the fact that in N. America, we have allowed financial institutions to grow at the expense of manufacturing. There are no more safeguards for workers in our country, and therefore, limited returns on investing in this city. Siemens is going to Carolina because the US Wagner Act is a joke, and the right to organize is a "shiny artifact of the past" (to quote Cohen). Meanwhile, US Steel, is belching out benzene and benzo(A) pyrene in its coking operation, claiming that global financial conditions are responsible for its decision to halt steel production here. It makes me want to puke when I see 20 cars in the parking lot at Stelco, and meanwhile, the lots are overflowing at Juravinski. Its time to shut down this Cancer Factory unless they (a) start making steel, and (b) immediately reduce harmful emissions. I will be at the Siemen's protest on Thursday, because people need to know that it is morally wrong to shut down a factory that is productive. Secondly, my wages as a member of the teacher's union are a direct result of the bargaining done by skilled workers in the past...

It's coming from the silence
on the dock of the bay,
from the brave, the bold, the battered
heart of Chevrolet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
