before any more intentional misinformation is spread, let's just say who the offending 'bar' is on Locke that is trying to ruin the neighbourhood. Ready for it?

The Courtyard Cafe. Yes, that's right. The nice little cafe and creperie with a beautiful, quiet courtyard patio behind their cafe. I guess in Hamilton we only like it when people use their back courtyards for more parking lots. I've almost been killed several times since Starbucks was allowed to put their parking lot behind their store. Can't say I've ever almost been run down while sitting on the Courtyard patio.

This isn't some dive bar on Barton Street. It's one of the most well behaved businesses on the street. They are now in an OMB hearing because one - yes ONE- neighbour complained about their liquor license application.

I would happily have the Courtyard move next door to my place (although I might go broke on their cappuccino's).

If you want to live somewhere without street life, commercial outlets and people on the sidewalk, move to virtually anywhere else in the city. I hear there are lots of nice, affordable homes on the Mountain and you won't have to worry about having a thing within walking distance.
