I read an article recently in the London Free Press where it was reported that London loses most of its student population upon graduation. One of the reasons mention was transportation:

"Better transit also is an issue for the young, the survey found, with Eftekarpour saying that would have helped him connect to London faster."

London, Ontario's council holds the same attitude toward transportation as Hamilton. The bus is for people who can't afford cars and cycling is for kids and recreation. And their economy has been sinking for years.

If Hamilton doesn't wake up and smell the future, it risks having a poor one. The dynamic good things happening to bring buzz and attention to the core has a shelf life limited by the inverse relationship between rising lifestyle expectations and disappointments of those investing their energy and their dollars.
