In the village of Waterdown (Flamborough), residents and the surrounding area locals revolted when Hamilton decided to put in tax-grab parking meters on Main Street opposite the frequently visited Post Office. Not only was there late night vandalism, a grassroots petition was launched within a week that secured hundreds of signatures in just a few days. The loud public outcry soon had the meters removed and, thus far, that's the end of the matter ... Likewise, ask Ancaster if they 'like' amalgamation. Most are paying higher taxes to cover public services for downtown Hamilton. The distance is great enough that they don't and won't care about LRT or 'core issues'. That's the 'reality' of amalgamation. Like it or not.
