Jason, instead of relying on one-offs to jump start the Hamilton economy, why not reduce our taxes? Even if the city just cut the rate for the residents right downtown, this would mean more disposable income in the pockets of individuals to spend at shows, restaurant, retailers, etc. This way we would get investments in real businesses rather than white elephants that politicians love to waste our money on.

We could even abolish taxes for the worst areas in the downtown, if this is what it took to build it back up. After a few years, when we got rid of the vacant and run down buildings, the city could gradually increase the rate.
