Ryan, I agree with you. If the U.S. government had mandated higher fuel efficiency standards, the cars produced by Detroit would have been much more attractive to consumers and their present balance sheet problems would be much less severe then they are today.

By trying to be nice to the automakers, North American governments have made them soft, sluggish and dependent.

The same thing has also happened to City of Hamilton. By allowing Hamilton to be a net recipient of government handouts, the city has become scared and weak. If Hamilton started receiving less from other communities, we would see our domestic economic base grow larger and stronger.

All Hamilton needs to get back up on its feet is a little bit of tough love.
