Excellent article. I completely agree with the premise that we ought to be celebrating our industrial heritage. This reminds me of something that was said during the Hamilton Economic Summit. While discussing Hamilton's industrial corridor in the north end, someone remarked that they wished murals could be put up on the Skyway Bridge so that people who are driving over the Skyway couldn't see the industry in the north end.

But our industry, present and past, is not shameful. We ought to be proud of it and celebrate it. What IS shameful, however, are the contaminated brownfields that have been left behind by industry. By developing something new and amazing at Rheem we can ameliorate that shame while at the same time celebrating the industries that helped build this city.
