Thanks for this, Shawn. The community value of built heritage is not only recognized by the Ontario Heritage Act, but by Hamilton's own higher-order planning documents. The Gore, in particular, is recognized as a critical asset in both the Downtown Hamilton Secondary Plan ("Putting People First") and more specific plans; see page 38 of the DHSP: Note the photograph of the threatened buildings at page 38 -- positioned immediately beside the provisions mandating that Hamilton conserve this historic streetwall. There seems to be a rather gross disconnect between our official-plan-level planning directives and implementation.
