As Hamilton slowly struggles to revitalize our downtown core, we can learn from other cities that are world-renowned for their downtown revitalization experiences.

This article highlights two of those cities, Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, B.C., and offers great insights into what makes a city great. Hold onto your hats, Hamiltonians - you might be surprised to know that the answer isn't more highways and big box stores. Surprise, surprise.

This article is part of a series that is worth reading in its entirety.

Jason Leach was born and raised in the Hammer and currently lives downtown with his wife and children. You can follow him on twitter.
