Ask yourself why the downtown is the only place this is happening? Why isn't it happening in Ancaster, Dundas, Stoney Creek, on the Mountain, Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga, Toronto, etc.

What is unique about downtown Hamilton that makes evil developers want to destroy the neighbourhood but nowhere else in the GTA? Is it a conspiracy?

Perhaps, just perhaps, it has to do with government policies that tax property investment at high rates, plus spending policies that encourage consumption but not work.

You want new private investment downtown, great. But the only answer I hear from RTH'ers is more government spending. WH stadium, LRT, new roads, etc.

I thought the goal was new PRIVATE investment, NOT new taxpayer investment. What am I missing?
