Go anywhere in Canada and ask about Hamilton, or Southern Ontario and general. People complain about us anywhere you go. But it sure isn't for a lack of suburban stadiums. When people in BC, the Maritimes or Quebec (where nobody I've met will admit to knowing where Hamilton is) think about our part of Canada all they can see is Brampton. Packed highways, sprawl, strip malls, and lives filled with work, shopping and bills. Not that I agree with them, but they raise some valid points.

Montreal has beautiful old-world architecture, neighbourhoods and culture. BC has beautiful mountainsides and the Maritimes have a rich seafaring culture. We destroy all of the above for strip malls.

Liveable cities are not about quality, not quantity. I don't care how far suburbs extend if we're leaving the rest of town to rot.
