"This city will never have a hope of becoming successful again as long as the current powerbrokers are in charge. Brutal. "

I couldn't agree more. Any campaign seeking to effect major change in the governance of this city should start by exposing the nexus of interrelation and mutual benefit existing between politicians, bureaucrats, and prominent businesspeople (read developers) in Hamilton. I can assure you that a little digging will yield up something a lot more rotten than you would have imagined.

As for this interview, Scott comes across as a complete baby and reactionary. He's trying to put up a facade of progressiveness and hipness - "I'm a cyclist" - but he just keeps devolving into fearmongering and obfuscation. No one is trying to take the roads away from the drivers, and Scott knows this, but he also knows that the perfectly reasonable argument that Ryan is trying to advance will not elicit the reaction he seeks from his listeners.
