My recollection is that Mr.Harris was permitted to obtain a second mandate from Ontarians. Even if you had any trouble deciphering his intentions through the first, ignorance is no tenable excuse for the second.

I agree...but I surely don't recall there being any campaigning on the four amalgamations that eventually resulted in the province.

But back in the Hammer: even populated as it was with vainglorious pols, the Board of Control represented an impetus for the municipality to think and act as a whole, not an assortment of mutually resentful fragments.

I'm still trying to nail down the date when the Hamilton Board of Control ceased to exist...but certainly did exist through the 70s, when most of the 'big changes' in Hamilton-proper had been put into effect, pre-Amalgamation.
