Point taken re the dangers of ignoring history, but I took Lorne to mean that he is tired of hearing all the 'remember when' stories. Too often in this town the 'remember when' mentality is paralyzing, and employed by the sort of people who have written off the downtown and advocate the wrecking ball as a solution. Newcomers to this city tend to see the potential and the beauty of what remains, which gives them the kind of hope that many longtime Hamiltonians have lost as a result of decades of loss and disappointment. That seems to be where Lorne is coming from.
