Jason >> I don't care what your political leaning is or what your preferred method of economic development is. The fact that Hamilton had more commercial/industrial growth than Mississuaga and Brampton combined is fantastic news.

As you can see, from 2008 to 2009, Hamilton cut tax rates on each dollar of property investment more than Mississauga. The result? More investment. Big surprise. When the city taxes investment less, it actually gets more. And to think, all of this without LRT or a Pan Am stadium. Just tax cuts.
