It's the summer of undemocratic (and so far, horrible) planning decisions in Hamilton. Thanks for bringing this issue to the public and for organizing the meeting.

Many strong rumours have been flying out of city hall in recent weeks that a big box developer such as Smart Centres may be in talks with the city about this land.
I would fully expect the mayor to side with the the NEN on this one, as he was the most vocal of anyone on council last term about the potential damage to downtown that large scale commercial development here would cause:

In Toronto they managed to arrange a deal with CN to build condo towers next to the rail yard. No reason we can't here. The city needs to continue with the original goals of the OMB hearing, and they need to absolutely stick with the plan that was put in place after years of public consultation.
