Wasn't that always obvious. He just doesn't get Hamilton's heritage, doesn't get the old buildings, doesn't get the poor people and wierd spiky haired artists living in them and especially doesn't get anything that might impose public responsibilities on private property landlords. Sad, Mr Economy doesn't even realize that by de-protecting heritage, he's throwing out one of the biggest potential selling features of this city and a key market differentiator. Lots of people with money want to move into hip cities that DO get it about heritage, cool urban architecture, creativity and the arts. They sure won't move into a city that snubs it's nose at them by trashing those very sources of appeal.
