Good work. Nicely worded too. Downvoting usually follows any anti-anything sentiment expressed here. But as you suggest, cheerleading with other people's money is irresponsible to say the least.

Personally, I think the whole thing should be shelved, along with all the other boondoggles being proposed until a couple of elephants are contended with that nobody seems to want to talk about.

  1. Hamilton has no business calling itself a city. It is a suburb, plain and simple and until folks accept the consequences of lack of density, no debate will make any sense. Density changes everything but NIMBYs prevail.

  2. Senior gummerments are essentially broke and the boomers are about to start retiring and drawing from soon to be exposed Ponzi pension plans. Dalton McGuilty still thinks he can replace all the coal plants with nukes. Fiat currency is about to have a run on the bank.

  3. I can't understand how we can ask residents of Moosonee to help pay for our LRT. When the time is right, the money will come easily.

  4. Hamilton is essentially on borrowed time. People think a credit card binge will stop businesses from closing. This is because people here are clueless sports fanatics who pay no attention to what is going on south of the border or the rest of the world and how they are being manipulated by those who seek profit. Proper sailors batten down the hatches when storm clouds brew but Titanic captains, Hamiltonians and RTHers say full steam ahead, party PanAm.

With apparently no candidate acknowledging these and other elephants and getting us mentally prepared, (correction welcome) I have little faith left in this city, its leaders or the sheeple. That could change if folks would replicate the thoughtfulness presented in this article.
