My principles:

  1. Raise the Hammer does not get to define what a city is.

  2. As long as there are Wal-Marts, Zellers, Best Buys, Future Shops, Cineplex Odeon Superplexes, megamalls, and Canadian Tires, you will not stop urban sprawl.

3.As long as people have children, you will not stop urban sprawl. The majority of people do not want to raise their children downtown.

4.While cars can be damaging to the environment, they serve a purpose, and people should not feel bad for owning a car. Streets are made for cars. Sidewalks are made for pedestrians.

5.Big business, contrary to popular belief, is not evil. Big cities, like Hamilton, will grow and thrive because of big business.

6.Art is not the new steel. Technology and medicine are Hamilton's future. Unless you live in Paris, France, your city will not thrive on art.

7.I agree that two way streets are better than one-way streets.
