"Instead, we persist in the cargo cult urbanism of building industrial employment parks next to highways and hoping the jobs will land."

What do you mean by "hoping the jobs will land"? Ryan, have you been to the Stoney Creek Industrial Park? This is one of the most successfull industrial parks in Ontario employing thousands of people. I took a trip to the Ancaster Industrial Park a couple of month ago and was amazed at how successful it is (though still small). All sorts of new economy industries: engineering, logistics, advanced manufacturing are locating there. Industrial parks in close proximity to highways have been hugely successful in Hamilton and we do not have enough of them. Once the Glanbrook and Airport Parks are serviced they too will become very successful at attracting industrial assessment and jobs that this city very much needs.
