"When Hamilton suffered from the economic crisis, a lot of people left the Mountain as more businesses and work were found in Hamilton's downtown core."

Maybe I've been Rip Van Winkled, but I don't recall it happening quite like that. Downtown has struggled to attract business investment and residential development since well before 2008. Some would say that the core has never fully recovered from the 1982 recession. Spend an evening downtown after 6pm and compare it to the Meadowlands or Lime Ridge Mall or Upper James and get back to me on the fabled Mountain exodus.
