"Let us not lament about our city or our downtown anymore. We are hurting ourselves deeply with each lament."

Funny because that is exactly how I would discribe this article - as a very lengthy lament.

Constantly hammering at the mistakes of the past only serves to hold us in stasis - a common Hamiltonian Ailment! We need to be forward moving!

"Like unsatisfied souls fighting organic ageing with Botox, every attempt to force rejuvenation onto a struggling city through visions, results in short-term fixes and long-term pains"

Look around the core of the city and take note of the great things the downtown renewal programs have been doing.

Sorth term gains? That depends on when one began watching?

I have seen many changes over the past 10 - 15 years! And this has accelerated in the past 5 years. I do not believe they will reverse, quite the contrary.

What we do too much of in Hamilton is focus on what is wrong - ad nauseum.

Too much lament and not enough inspiration will not help to move us forward.
