The bottom line is that the City of Hamilton needs to do more than pay lip service and not just "say" they are making changes. They need to actually change the systemic negative "You Can't Do That" attitude and indoctrinate a "How can we" attitude.

I agree completely.

I've had some very interesting conversations with people in the business community in Hamilton this summer, leading me to feature editorials such as this one:

Any time it's a culture you need to be looking at changing and not just a bylaw here or a clause there or a policy element wherever, you've got your hands full. The sad thing is that I'm not of the opinion that Hamiltonians in the main appreciate just how bad things are because of this 'culture of obstructionism' at City Hall. (Though noting that we currently have only 17% of the tax revenue pie being contributed by the business community should be reason for people to start asking questions...and demanding answers.)
