While I disagree with Don's asertion that these three council decisions were somehow related to the environment. I do find it disheartening that for many of the councillors the environmental concequences of their votes were clearly not even on their radar.

I see these issues more as hypocracy on the part of most individuals on council. A lot of words are spoken by politicians, promises are made, policies are bandied about. But when it comes right down to voting on issues, political influence takes over.

Looking at how the votes turned out, who has more influence with council? The 10's of thousands of regular HSR riders or the few individual operators of the Hamilton Airport?

User pay accross the board for all services? Or just for those users who don't or can't speak up for themselves.
