Ward 11 (the "right" side of Rymal as you put it) has a population of 37,000, which is actually above the average for Hamilton, by virtue of the fact that it includes East Stoney Creek and Winona (it's a really huge and funny-shaped ward) and the terrifyingly-fast-growing Binbrook. So it's not really a good example of a "extra representation rural vote". Those Ward 11 farmers have less of a voice on Council than you or I, actually.

The under-30K wards are, in order of lowest to highest, 14 (Flamborough), 15 (Waterdown), 10 (Stoney Creek), 13 (Dundas), 9 (East Mountain), and 1 (us).
