The truth is amalgamation was and always will be the 1000lb elephant in the room. The trick is not forcing it to leave, it is trying to keep it happy. I agree with equal representation by population, the fact is we simply can't afford any new councilors.Even though I would love to see a third councilor elected to share the duties in Wards 3 and 4. We simply need the existing ones to get out and work harder. Yes the Ward 14 councilor only has 15,920 constituents, but they have along way to go to reach these people. A lower city councilor only has to head to the coffee shop and can touch base with a lot more people.

The answer is not more, but better, much the way many large companies restructured after the recession and created a smaller tighter product or service. Please my analogies may not be tight, I realize many people where hurt by these restructurings, my point is Hamiltonian's will continue to hurt unless we put the elephant on a diet.
