And I do ask it honestly. Currently on the Hamiltonian there is a debate over the steel industry. Some people want steel to come back because it is jobs, while others see the potential for redeveloping those lands. But some argue that only reinforces the "bedroom community" status of Hamilton.

So it has me wondering, are 1000 jobs in a polluting roller coaster of an industry better than attracting say 10,000 new residents to the community, even if those residents are commuters? I have some opinions and notions but I'm curious what others think/feel?

What will transform a city in need of transformation the most, new jobs or new people?
