Not saying we want to be exactly like these cities


I've never bought into this Hamilton mentality that likes to act proud of how 'tough' we are to live here because it's such a downtrodden town compared to other places. Almost as if people like to revel in our state of decline.

There's nothing cool about sucking. There's nothing to be proud of for being in the midst of Canada's most prosperous region and until a few years ago, having virtually nothing to show for it. It's time for change. Anyone who doesn't want to be more like a successful, vibrant city is holding us back.

Great piece Graham - you're right on, as usual.
