My understanding...having sat in on some conversations amongst that this is not a Council malaise per se.

This has to do with the people at City Hall running departments.

It has to do with the establishment of fiefdoms, of little kingdoms, and the entrenchment of empires and a middle-management, civil-service mentality that does not in fact support the notion of 'Hamilton's Open For Business'.

The tales I've heard regarding situations such as the Pearl Company, Festival of Friends...even the general topic of getting a business off the ground in enough to send me to

The sad thing is that the idea of changing departmental cultures is not a 'sexy' platform to run on...even though I believe all the frontrunners agree there is in fact a problem. My belief is that nothing will change until the people's awareness has been increased, and they feel it's time to do something about it. Until then? They're more concerned with a) the stadium issue...and b) venting their unfocused frustrations.
