Councillor McHattie, we can do much better than this.

You are telling us that the product of the behind-closed-doors meetings is a scheme to get taxpayer money to the property owner, through heritage grants, while allowing demolition of the buildings. You describe this as “not a desirable outcome.” I will describe it as perverse.

It is time that we shift the focus away from the interests of the property owner and towards the interests of Hamilton and Hamiltonians.

Council has the ability to bring about a desirable outcome. Designation of the buildings will void the demolition permits. Please follow the advice of the Municipal Heritage Committee and designate the buildings now.
