Thanks to all for sharing in such a lively conversation.

I must confess that I haven't read all 35 + comments. As a relatively newcomer, I sense that Hamilton is perhaps suffering from an identity crisis: history vs. future, community-driven vs. cosmopolitan drive, etc.

Imbedded non-profits are advocating that 'moving is not an option', whilst, as a recent McMaster grad I can attest to the fact that living here having to commute to TO is not a real option either. The civic movement is fervently against the Aerotropolis, while some feel that having a viable international airport in Hamilton will encourage companies to establish themselves here vs. in Toronto.

I hope that open discussion vs. adversarial debate will result in discovery of sustainable solutions including the attraction of employers to the Hamilton core. Let's rebuild a sustainable viable economy here in Hamilton (and multi-story buildings, if that's what is require) to sustain Hamilton-based families including their recent McMaster grads.
