Mr. Meister with all due respect. One of the reasons Hamilton is in the shape it's in, is due to people having this 'good enough' attitude. I love Hamilton. That's why I live here. I see a ton of potential just like everyone else. The fact is, in order to reach that potential we are going to have to change some things about how we function and how we think. I don't want to live somewhere else. I want to see Hamilton stop lagging behind like some losertown and instead become the great city I know we can be. To suggest that learning from other cities who can teach us a thing or two is 'bashing Hamilton' is a stretch.

We are in the predicament that we find ourselves in as a city due to that exact attitude. Don't allow your leaders and elected officials off the hook by simply caving into the "everything is fine" mentality. Show them better examples of more exciting cities and demand that they get off their duffs and bring momentum and change to our own city. The status quo simply isn't working.
