If I had a billion dollars to spend to improve Hamilton I would build some serious apartments and condos. Buy some of the empty lots and build modern spacious condos and apartments. Maybe some ground floor commercial. Use a small percentage (10%? 15? 20%) as geared to income housing. That stops the ghettos. Underground parking. Bringing people back to the core is the only way to re-vitalize it. People will move much more readily to premises that meet the modern lifestyle. Deed it all to the city so that it can benefit from the buildings virtually forever.

I certainly don't have all the answers but a billion dollars on LRT in Hamilton is a huge waste of money.
