The city can get all the written guarantees it wants from these developers. The truth is that the parties involved are so well connected with both council and staff that they will be able to violate the guarantees with impunity. In the absence of very serious political pressure (which is invariably lacking in Hamilton) the city will never enforce a contract against the aptly named "consortium". In fact, I can assure you, as is so often the case in City of Hamilton development deals, the lawyers on both sides will negotiate knowing full well that the clauses of the agreement they are drafting are pure window dressing.
