I have actually found the stadium debate a wonderful exercise in democracy. It is the first time I (and I suspect many, many other Hamiltonians) have corresponded with city councillors or attended a council meeting. And I have realized that many of our councillors DO listen. So perhaps all the people complaining of the paucity of ideas/ representation they receive from our council need to stop and consider whether they can become part of the solution. If you care, write your councillor, write letters to the editor, register as a delegation to a council meeting.

I am happy to have had a voice. As corny as it sounds, we are truly blessed. One of my best friends is from Tunisia, where people have died fighting for freedom of expression -- we need to treasure it and use, not abuse it!
