James, Cities pay more for infrastructure than they receive from the developer. Jason is correct in his statement above, if you don't believe it, how about you prove it with empirical evidence. The problem is that you only see things like how many times a bus comes by a day instead of say, how much sewer line had to be built to your door. If ten people live in a condo, is it fair for them to have to pay for the roads and sewers and whatnot to a single home.

Also the assertion that this urban/rural co-existing is unique to Hamilton is obviously very, very wrong. Hamilton is not some special case. While, many cities in the Golden Horseshoe have allowed development to force out all of the agriculture, but a short list of other cites in Ontario with plenty of rural areas follows Ottawa London K-W Kingston Sarnia Barrie Guelph North Bay Timmins
