Urbanite Hamiltonians are constantly footing the bill for building and servicing suburban developments for decades. Our water, sewers, schools and roads were built decades ago or longer, our libraries and buses are easy to fund and frequently used because of our high density and traditional urban development pattern.

The area-rating system of judging transit use based on where you live is sloppy math, anyway. Ancaster residents don't get turned down when they try to bus from Jackson Square to Upper James, nor are their fees any higher. Not having convenient bus service around your home is a predictable consequence of not choosing to live to anything else worth busing to, and doesn't mean you aren't also being provided bus service to, from and between hundreds of other shopping centres, workplaces, libraries, sporting facilities or government offices.

Oh, and as someone who lives in Beasley, I know exactly what it feels like to not have a community centre.
