2005, 21.5% of Hamilton city revenue from other levels of government
2009, 25.0% of Hamilton city revenue from other levels of government.

How can we be innovative as a city if we look ever more to the government to pay our bills? Where is the stress to force us to be creative? Any personal trainer will tell you, without effort, results will not follow. If the result we want is a strong and healthy economy, don't we need to do some work?

Halton region is one of the richest in Canada. Curiously enough, their motto is this..."Absque Labore Nihil" or "Nothing Without Effort"

In contrast, Hamilton's motto is this... "Together Aspire, Together Achieve".

I don't know about you, but Hamilton's motto is much more inspiring, while Halton's seems depressing. Unfortunately, Halton's motto is also correct. Nothing in life is achieved without effort. By embracing reality and the truth, rather than Obama sounding cliches, Halton has created a prosperous and healthy community, while Hamilton struggles under ever growing poverty and job losses.

It's time for Hamilton to embrace reality.
