From 2005-09, city government expenditures in Hamilton went up by 45.7%, but population only went up by 1.3%. In contrast, from 2001-05, the government only increased spending by 19.37%, yet population went up 5.8%.

It would appear that Hamilton is a more attractive place to live when more of the money stays in the hands of people/businesses, rather than being spent by the government.

King St East could be bustling again, but the way to do it is by cutting taxes/spending and embracing the free market. Allow Hamilton to once again produce things people want to buy, rather than relying on the government to lead the way (monopoly health/education industries).
