I think that a city building mindset must include businesses and entrepreneurs where some of these, all of these actually, may appear to be out to only be a successful business rather than interested in "city building". I've never met a business man anywhere who wasn't in it in the first place for his business and his pocket. Did Ron Joyce start out to help "build the city"? Of course not. But in the end having a sucessful business operating in Hamilton rather than someplace else is "city building" even without that as a primary goal of the business in the first place.

It's like working. Some people are fortunate enough to be working in a field they love. But they wouldn't have gotten into that field if it wasn't going to at least put some food on the table and able to feed themselves and perhaps a family.

We look after ourselves first, secondly that contributes to a healthy city if you have people working and businesses thriving.
