I understand different cultures, I deal with having to install uniform practices in to vastly different cultures. You absolutely need to consider the culture when implementing these changes/practices but it still gets done… the change happens and culture shifts.

I assume you're talking about differences in corporate cultures, which might actually bear some relevance to how we approach change in Hamilton. But when we hear nonsense like this:

You are looking at two completely different cultures. You cannot compare one city to another. You need to look at the greater whole...North American vs. Europe.

what we're really seeing is the narcissism of small differences. The way the squelchers talk, you'd think we were comparing Hamilton to Beijing, instead of other industrialized Western cities.
