"People who know me know I'm a Hamilton booster of the first rank."

I don't know you but I respect your work at H+H. But I think you've got some serious blinkers on with this argument, and I would almost hazard you're putting the realization of your own dreams here above a suitable compromise. This site will not give the imagined rewards the WH would. But a good politician deals with externalities and risks. You don't get your imagined payoff, but nor do you get a brownfield at Ivor Wynne. Maybe because people here rarely go east of Victoria, but I see a rebuilt IWS offering a kickstart to ward 3 that WH would never bring to ward 1. Remediate the Rheem land and that property will take off without you doing anything.

You've gotten cynical about the city after this. Not me, I think the city will be better because of it. The only thing I've gotten cynical about is the RTH community. I'm stunned the way people here are treating the Ivor Wynne proposal as though it's another East Mountain.
