Reuben, homes in Hamilton, especially in the downtown, are very cheap relative to Burlington. This indicates that very few people want to live there, otherwise they would be willing to pay higher prices. So while Ryan can talk about Burlington "sprawl" in a negative manner, his views don't reflect the reality of what people actually want.

People like sprawling Burlington and it's much lower tax rates, while they do not like Hamilton and especially it's downtown, where tax rates are high and transit is plentiful. Please try to explain this Ryan, if built form and transit drive demand, not lower tax rates, why doesn't Hamilton enjoy higher property values than Burlington? What is the marketplace missing?
