@Udustrial Good post. Just to clarify -- since, on the surface and in comparison my post conflicts with your diverse industry notion. I agree with the diverse economy -- god knows we are a testament to what happens when most of your eggs are in one basket. What I'm proposing is that we help this diversity along a little. A bit of an incubation strategy....since, not development stages vary depending on species/ industry.

I would also actively court 'intellectual' and creative entities. That would serve to diversify the economy and act as a student retention program. After recently reading about the importance of leveraging the talent fostered in our local post-secondary institutions, it seems very important that initiative actively seek to minimize the migration to other communities (well, to Toronto, more accurately.)

(Hope this doesn't come back on me....but, I work at a company that sort of fits that criteria -- and would be a great fit in downtown Hamilton. Alas, we're in the 'burbs.)
