Council is usually looking for the quickest and most politic route from A to B. As long as the rot is not so widespread as to infect photo ops, groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings, the status quo will likely prevail.

At present, the most momentous political upheaval on Hamilton's horizon seems to be the introduction of an additional ward on the mountain. The lower city doesn't vote in the kind of numbers that would earn it respect (Ward 5 straggles into the top third of voter turnout... Ward 2/Ward 3 are in the lower third) those wards appear to be the only ones with net population losses (http://www.raisethehammer.org/comment/70004), and new jobs and housing starts seem to be sprinkled around the rim (http://www.investinhamilton.ca/onebillion) in communities like Glanbrook, Stoney Creek and Ancaster.
