I think you misunderstand me.

Hamilton has amongst the highest mil rates in the world. People move in and out of cities for jobs and the net impact on their lives in terms of happiness and wealth.

I personally know a significant number of people who have not put businesses here or have removed them because the taxes are too high and because the City has constantly experimented with things. If I build a factory on Wellington Street, and then my workers can't get there because they change it to a two way street, what am I to do.

Think of the major major industry that has left this City in the last 40 years. What will be left to support the downtown if people cannot get to work there?

City council should be afraid. Sooner or later the tax rates in Hamilton will not support the businesses that remain here.

I value time more than anything else because it is limited to me. I don't live in Toronto because the commute times are obscene. I could have. I chose to live here specifically because of time efficiencies. If you can get high density downtown without frustrating the hell out of taxpayers who vote with their feet - good on your.

Why is a pilot project called a pilot project if it isn't a pilot project?
