I live in Waterdown and I genuinely care about the future of Hamilton and want the City to thrive. For me then, this is not a suburb versus city's a question of fairness. I simply don't get the services as a resident in Hamilton does. HSR's Route 18 is a joke, there are no community centres in Waterdown and our library is pathetic. Furthermore, my neighbours down the street fall within Burlington and therefore pay 50 percent less tax than I do.

If council or whomever resolves that it's one rate fr the whole city, I will sell my house and move to Burlington because the difference in taxes between the two will allow me to afford a bigger mortgage across the municipal boundary.
