A great letter.

I remember voting in the last election for the current mayor and my current councillor. I do not remember voting for, nor asking for the opinions of, Scott Mitchell, Michael Fenn, Mark Cohon, Ian Troop, or Bob Young.

The tone and content of the RTH letter provides a poignant counterpoint to the tone and content of the abusive, inappropriate, and completely out-of-touch rhetoric of the Ti-Cats and their provincial government supporters.

I'd ask each of our elected officials to take the pulse of the community. To reflect on what building a city can contribute to the future of Hamilton. To make what will be a very difficult decision, but one that will communicate in no uncertain terms that successfully standing for office also means successfully standing up for the citizens of this city when they are being bullied, threatened, and coerced by people who don't even live here, let alone who haven't made the commitment to serve their community as elected officials. They are serving their own constituents/shareholders, but let's not confuse our greater good with their greater revenue.

It's going to be an interesting week ahead.
