I get slightly different numbers.

nearly 70 percent of the city's 201,000 commuters work in Hamilton itself.

Or 30% or about 60,000 people in Hamilton commute out of Hamilton.

38,340 people commute into Hamilton from other municipalities

Meaning the net outward commute is about 60,000 - 38,000 = 22,000 people.

In terms of a percentage, this is 22,000/201,000 = 11%

Which does an even better job of proving your point: Hamilton is indeed very far from being a bedroom community.
