I've got to ditto Moylek's post. A generation ago, this city really was a wonderful place for immigrants. It's just that back in that day, those immigrants were Italian, Polish, etc. My own family (and most of our family friends) came here from Argentina. Ask the younger members of these all-white organizations where their parents came from.

Even then, Hamilton has (according to Wikipedia and I can't be bothered to figure where it got it) proportionally the 3rd-largest immigration population in Canada.

So in spite of our colossal screw-ups, they still come here. And for the last decade or three, those immigrants haven't been white. I'm betting change in these councils is just around the corner.
