Imagine Hamilton's lower city with 100,000 more people packed into its neighbourhoods.

Keanin Loomis can imagine that new world. In fact, the president of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce says it has to become a reality if the city's economy is to grow.

Loomis told The Spectator's editorial board Tuesday that pushing the city's population to 650,000 over the next 20 to 30 years will provide the "critical mass" of people needed to support the controversial LRT transit plan and, in turn, growth of the economy.

"We're still short of that critical mass in many parts of the city," he said.
