I've made joking comments to friends and family about the fetish of the car in Hamilton. But there's no humour in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.

It seems like large segment of Hamilton's population is still stuck in a mindset from the 1950s-60s-70s. A time when the economy was booming, the car was king. These folks literally don't want anything to change, in terms of roads/streets, despite the massive change in the circumstances of the city. This unyielding, myopic view is truly unbelievable.

"The competitive advantage"? Does Hamilton have any? One? Toronto's advantage is easily seen in its high-density residential downtown core; it's booming digital industry; its thriving arts/culture, to name a few. Hamilton's Main Street Freeway isn't an advantage.
