We probably don't need to worry about becoming a bedroom community without LRT. Just a slow-growth, low-image, investment-unfriendly city.

Very well put.

Despite our longstanding history re: Toronto, in a very ironic way, I think because of our particulars, we've never been at risk for becoming a 'bedroom community'. (Contrasted with other municipalities to the west, north and east of That Giant CIty Wot's Gots Bedrooms.)

Additionally perversely ironic is the fact that perhaps the main bulwark has been our 'legacy malaise'.

The fantastic thing is that we have the opportunity to retain who we are while reinventing ourselves, with both transit elements playing their part.

I've said it before, I'll say it again; if I had money to invest, I'd definitely invest it here, because Hamilton is a gem just waiting to be unearthed, given a good shine, and valued appropriately.
