By Scammed: Thanks for the info. My background is in accounting, so the additional information is good to know. While I would not know everything about this market, my background would give me the ability to ask pertinent questions. With alagamtion and the downloading of social services, it played havoc on commercial taxes and with the bottoming out of the market, is it a good time to invest in real estate endeavors like this?

Not that I have money to invest, I am just another person that struggles. It is very sad that those the skilled trades and others got duped. People work hard for their money and such losses can be detrimental.

Last year, he was promoting a giant glass pyramid, one just knew that would never get off the ground. Hamilton is and was an industrial city, the working man city. The city iself has done a poor job of getting people to invest, to work toward sustainable jobs for the people who no longer have those good paying industrial jobs.

Maybe more emphasis should be put on cleaning up the brownfields and getting green technology into the city, retraining workers, those that struggle are thwarted by the system to get entry into skilled trade programs. People cannot survive on $8 to $9 an hour jobs, but that is what we are seeing. The Living Wage and Fair Employment Coalition deemed a living wage in Hamilton in 2006 to be around $12.96 per hour. Why does the city, the agencies keep pushing these call center jobs that deny people a living wage, they have no benefits, forget pensions, many of these jobs are through the temp agencies which further denies workers to stat holdiay pay and even possibly overtime. Just how is this helping the people of this city???????
