Jason, this is really my last word on this issue. In fact, and I'm going from memory but have the info saved, my support came from Stoney Creek by a huge margin about 73%, From Ancaster, Flamborough, Hamilton Mountain and Hamilton east. I lost in Hamilton West, Hamilton Center and Dundas (by smaller margins than I won.) And where David won there was a smaller voter turnout.

These are the facts. Others may wish to analyze the meanings. The point is that this is almost ancient history now. Patterns changed in the last Mayoralty election. Amalgamation has many critics but many aspects of it are good for the entire community. I have written on this in my blog essays (the one on Sprawl). We should just move on to build a successful city in all of its jurisdictions. At some point the divide has to stop; and it will, I believe. But only when the rhetoric tones down and all citizens feel they are paying fair taxes and getting good services.
