Keep up the great work Graham. Nothing of good in Hamilton ever came without a fight. It's just the price of living in this city. It breeds tough persistent citizens and it is something to be proud of. For those who find this uncomfortable, there are some great apathetic suburbs in the GTA you can move to - unfortunately they don't have local blogs to troll.

For inspiration, look no further than the Lister Block. There are those who said over and over again that the Lister Block was on its last legs. That is was ready to fall down. You even had the messy intertwined dealings of a shady mayor, an organization with links to organized crime, and the local newspaper acting as a mouth piece for the other two. Everything was lined up against it. But a funny thing happened on the way to the wrecking ball. A bunch of citizens decided to push back and it turned the whole thing around. We are now only days away from what was said to be impossible: A revitalized Lister Block. It wasn't easy - but it was done.
