I think you need to consider it seriously sooner rather than later.

Thanks, but believe me, a) I may have been born at night, but not last night, and b) I've heard all this before.

Seriously, I'm a big boy. My eyes are open. I'm not some rube, I'm not some wide-eyed greenhorn. I know all about apathy. I know all about our community's default.

I also know that Paul Berton of The Spec is on-board.

I also know that Martinus Geleynse of urbanicity is interested enough to want to talk.

And mostly, I know that this is the best concept on the table to move towards having a far better form of local governance. As someone from RTH said to me:

"This is visionary. If it's possible, this has the potential to transform Hamilton like no other idea I've heard."

Will it be easy? Hardly. There's no worse obstacle than apathy.

But you know? This just means that there are so many opportunities within which we can succeed.

People look around the world and see revolutions in the streets. Guess what? This is the basis of ours.
