Hamilton has long suffered under Toronto's insufferably smug attitude. As one of the artists mentioned, when I perform in TO I have been greated with derision and actual boos when I announce my home town. I am proud of Hamilton, and have always defended her to Toronto.

Now that Toronto needs us, they are suddenly interested? How self serving. Now that they have messed their own city up to the point where no one beneath the rank of corporate VP can afford to live there (ok, an exaggeration to be sure, but us creative types tend to do that) they are suddenly interested in what Hamilton has to offer?

Quite frankly, we don't need to Toronto. They need us. I am not looking forward to watching Toronto mess up Hamilton as badly as they have destroyed their own culture from within.
