"Respectfully, if you believe commentary on any Internet site is what dictates development in the city of Hamilton, I think your critical thinking skills and information on city processes need an update."

Meredith,

My critical thinking skills are quite well developed and I have spent more time working the system at city hall than I care to remember. I know exactly how the game is played. I am not nieve enough to think that commentary on this site or any other site dictates what happens in this city. But the same people commenting here are the people emailing councillors and attending public meetings. I am not saying that is a bad thing, but it skews the view that elected officials get of the publics point of view.

The squeeky wheel gets the grease. All it takes is a handful of individuals to derail any project in this city. I might also add that works conversely as well, with the few getting projects approved without the majority being onboard. We have seen it over and over for the last 40 years.
