Cities in southern Ontario, especially the so-called “golden” horseshoe (looking more like a “tarnished” horseshoe these days) must get over their addiction to more, more and more land. Case in point, The City of Hamilton wishes to chew up farmland around the airport for development—the so-called “aerotropolis.”
This goes on while sections of the city, within its current boundary, are underdeveloped, e.g. Bayfront Industrial Area and Barton Street to name just two.
Once again, we must point out that until a city, not just Hamilton, demonstrates the ability to deal with unused, underused and misused properties it is irresponsible for that city to even consider expanding its landmass.
