Yeah, like I said in another thread - I'd like to see hard numbers about how much we are the dumping ground for the province's problems.

I mean, either way it doesn't make sense for the municipality to be paying for social services instead of the province or the fed - that only guarantees a downward spiral while wealthier communities can ignore the problem.

But if our problems are exports from other locales (like the notorious downtown halfway house) then it's doubly ridiculous for Hamiltonians to shoulder that burden... but I've never heard anybody quote statistics either way. How much of our underclass is home-grown vs. exports from places that are simply too expensive to live in when you're homeless, drugged-out, or suffering from mental illness?
