"Bob Bratina says Hamilton has to decide whether it wants to stay in the big leagues as a city.

I know there's always a danger taking material out of context...but I have to say that this sounds like it was ordered from www.rhetoric.com At a discount. Given how poor the tradition is for good and open communication from our Council, this is precisely the kind of stuff I'd hoped would not be uttered from the Mayor.

Hamilton Mayor tells CHML's Bill Kelly he doesn't want to be the mayor who diminishes Hamilton.

Man, this is what inspires great comedy routines. Or maybe the full quote was "...doesn't want to be the mayor who diminishes Hamilton any further."

He says either we're going to be in the game and play off the tradition that the Tiger Cats are a part of, or not. Anything in between, he says, doesn't make any sense to him.

I don't want to be a Negative Nelly (in fact, I went on record as having a hunch that Bratina was going to surprise people...in a good way), and the Mayor is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but in these declarations, he sure isn't striking me with inspiring confidence. Nor does he come across as a particularly 'big thinker'.

Maybe it's early-days, he's just finding his feet?
