Ted's suggestions ARE the solutions.

Go to Montreal, New York, Portland, Vancouver, Toronto, Boston etc....and tell me what the 'freak and weirdo' vibe is like compared to Hamilton. It's a venerable gong show in those downtowns. Yet, why do we all keep going?? Because they have an abundance of the things Ted is talking about. And they DON'T have an abundance of the things we have in Hamilton which kill street life - psuedo highways tearing through downtown in the form of Main,King,York,Cannon and Wilson.

Here in Hamilton we are either the dumbest people on the planet, or we just don't care enough about downtown to make these easy changes. I think the latter is correct.
