Larry DiIanni tweeted this morning:

The operative word is 'build' not 'stop' I think many are into 'City Stopping' not 'City Building'

This was in reference to the business people who signed the letter stating their position against a casino.

From my perspective, this means DiIanni does not consider small business owners to be city builders.

I suppose he only considers you a "city builder" if you support a mega-project that makes a few people rich (off the backs of the average taxpayer)?

Last I checked, every single business owner and resident of Hamilton - especially downtown - is helping to build this city up.

Larry's comments are insulting to those of us who are actually trying.

From what I can tell, the only projects in this city that have actually worked to build something positive have been the small ones, building organically one address at a time.

I'd like to see Larry point out one mega project that's actually had a positive impact downtown... crickets chirp
