I have been thinking about that focus on newcomers as well, and it was a bit depressing to hear it from the panelists. Swaying decision-makers to take concrete steps to revitalize the downtown will take outsiders plus public education and awareness campaigns of our existing population. Yet it is hard to generate momentum in the absence of an impending decision, such as a stadium location. So in the end I do think our proximity to Toronto will be what 'saves' the downtown, but we will only attract migrants from other cities if there are good nuggets to build on. They don't want to start from scratch. So it will take both.
