Hopeful, I hear you.

TVO had a 30 minute documentary last night about Portland, Oregon. It was stunning to see video footage of their downtown in the 60's. The place was a dump!! Lots of cars, and no people or businesses.

The point of the show was to heap praise on Portlands decision makers for seeing the future by looking to old examples in Europe and choosing to avoid the mistakes of L.A.

Seeing that show seemed to drive the point home even further that Hamilton will NEVER see that sort of turnaround. So much of a city's success is tied to it's decision/policy makers. Need I say more?
