if it's acceptable to have a Toronto media speak for us with no need for a local affiliate, then the first place I'd start is by scrapping the Spec. I read the Star more often than the Spec anyhow so I can actually find out what's happening in the world and get great reports on the 'new deal for cities' and other urban issues that are hugely important in Hamilton, yet ignored or given token coverage which is usually slanted by the Spec's largest advertisers anyhow. If there was ever a city that needed new media outlets NOT owned by the same old boys club that runs everything else in town, it's Hamilton. On the other hand, the Spec has no choice but to run editorials like this. Find me an old boys club on the planet that enjoys it when another party comes to town.
