@turbo - I did move here and I am staying here. That's my point! If all you offer your residents is low paying jobs and no transit - they will move! (If they can...)

And I don't hate TO. Why? Because there are lots of well paying jobs and good transit!

Hamilton is not on a solid path to creating well paying jobs in accessible areas. Aerotropolis is a case in point. ANYBODY can attract warehouse type employers. Just give them some ashphalt, pipes and a good tranport network. Employees are a dime a dozen because they are unskilled jobs. Welcome to Pittsburg, Cleveland, Buffalo - anywhere.

But not every town can draw in more selective employers. THAT'S the challenge Hamilton should be taking on if it wants to prosper and set itself apart.
