You are very welcome!

Learning from others is very much a part of today's corporate business world. Because there are real consequences of failing to keep up with competitors.

Governments really have little competition and provide few alternatives, even when those alternatives are very popular. For example, there is a huge demand for living in car-free neighbourhoods. The closest one to here is the Toronto Islands.

The demand is so high that there is a 20-year waiting list for housing. And whenever a spots open on the bottom of the list, people pay $125 for a one-in-ten chance of winning a lottery to get on the bottom of a 20-year wait list.

That's high demand!

But do governments respond to that kind of demand by giving us those opportunities in Hamilton? No. Everyone is forced to live in car-dominated neighbourhoods. There is no choice.
