My point is not that transit is bad, but that having someone else pay for it is bad. The residents of Hamilton will end up being net recipients of tax dollars if this goes forward, and this will strengthen our dependency on the state.

Hamilton used to be a net contributor to the country, we were ambitious and hard working. We paid more in tax dollars than we got back.

Think of the city's economy being like our bodies, when we are physically taxed, we get stronger, and more capable. What most people on this site want is the opposite, we want others to do all our work for us. The result is an economy that is stunted and weak. Let's make Hamilton strong again, and the only way to do this is with sacrifice.

If we can learn to rely on ourselves, Hamilton could be the leading city in Canada, strong and vibrant, with plenty of opportunities for everyone who comes here.
