I came from a suburb, I now live downtown.

The suburbs have a had a free ride since Regional Government in the early 70's.

The first thing that happened was all of the capital improvement reserves were amalgamated. The only city that had any real reserves was the old city of Hamilton.

Where did the first $10 million (1974 dollars) go? To fix the aging water/sewer systems in Dundas.

To the people in the suburbs; you don't like the stigma of living in the City of Hamilton, fine. But don't cry about your taxes and lack of services. Your argument is completely garbage.

BTW, I lived in Stoney Creek, you think politics were bad in Hamilton, you should have seen the sweethearts in Stoney Creek.

Also, didn't the new City of Hamilton have to absorb some sort of multi-million dollar lawsuit in Flamborough. Apparently it was so big that it could have bankrupted the town.
