JonC >> You're right, it is an excellent example of the government pooling citizens' resources to undertake immensely successful infrastructure projects

Did I say it was an excellent way to spend people's money? Where's that quote? All I was pointing out was that any money the government spent, ultimately came from people's hard work and free enterprise, not out of thin air.

Tom doesn't believe that hard work or free enterprise had anything to do with Hamilton becoming one of the most important economic centres in Canada and I disagree. I understand that wikipedia isn't the most reliable source, but read this...( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_history_of_Hamilton,_Ontario ) and then tell me that the private sector wasn't the driving force behind this city's success.
