One thought about the Spec piece today. Headline says "New Hamilton should understand that downtown belongs to everyone".

Very true. But keep in mind, 'old Hamilton' has ignored downtown and refused to invest in it, or 'go down there' for the past 25 years. One can be sympathetic to the passion displayed by those who have actually invested their precious time and money that has led to the turnaround. Now, those who fled downtown and let it rot for decades want to jump back into the mix and dictate "how to fix it". Sorry, you had your chance. Anyone is welcome to invest and enjoy the new downtown, but you can be sure the new guard will do just that - protect our core from being gutted and destroyed by many of those who had a hand in destroying it in the first place.
