Just read The Spec Q & A with our mayor. What is UP with pointing out that the Young family have been in Hamilton since the 1800s? Does this mean they are our betters, and the "dissidents" in Hamilton have no right to question them?

When Bratina was my Ward 2 councillor I wrote him an email and was taken very sternly and strongly to task by the lack of respect I was showing to him. (I was questioning his flip-flopping positions on the West Harbour, but my email was polite enough).

This is the overall impression I have of Bratina. A well-connected old boy who is geniunely shocked and confused that he and his cronies are being questioned in any way. He seems to think that if we just let the "elite" have their way, they'd soon get the city of Hamilton back to its glory days.

It is not a small group of dissidents that are the problem for this city. It is a small group of entitled, corrupt throwbacks that see progress as regressing to a mythical past.
