If thinking that the CFL should not be able to make a decision about tens of millions of dollars of public funding for the Pan-Am Games makes me a hick, then I guess I'm a hick.

By the way, that's a racial and economic slur, just like hillbilly or redneck, or n**er for that matter - totally not cool. There's too many places in this town where Jews, Arabs and black people are more than welcome but a working class white guy with a UFC shirt and Nascar hat, everyone assumes he must be a crack-head or a wife beater.

This kind of dismissive and dehumanizing rhetoric suits this town perfectly. People like Bob Young honestly believe Hamilton is a city of around 500 well-educated, thinking human beings, and half-a-million unthinking brutes played by film set extras from the rust belt, who need to be strictly controlled. Laws, democracy - none of that matters, because they know what's best for us.
