Great Article Jason,

We need good news stories once in a while. I understand why some people may take the building permit numbers with a grain of salt. How much of the commercial permits are hospitals, schools, and civic institutions? It may be too early to tell, but I don't think our building is associated with pop. increases. I think people are critical of Hamilton because we haven't had huge pop. increases in many years. Although an aging population is troublesome, I dont think our slow population growth is a problem. I don't know who said it first (R. Florida?), but population growth and economic growth are not always the same thing (Milton comes to mind here in Ontario). Nevertheless, these kinds of numbers are nice to see, and even nicer given the recession that we've been through.
