Tim Hortons Field has become a field of jeers
As Infrastructure Ontario and Ontario Sports Solutions scramble to make the $145.7 million stadium safe for the 18,000 fans patiently waiting for their beloved Labour Day Classic to take place in what will be a construction zone, questions continue to drip like a water torture over how it came to this. The most obvious question is how could such an embarrassing situation happen? But the more troubling issue is, were taxpayers lied to by provincial officials and/or Ontario Sports Solutions when they guaranteed the stadium would be completed on time and on budget to host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ home games?
Hamilton's bike share breakdown
The City of Hamilton had all the right sentimental reasons to create a bike share program, but so far the program has seen more obstacles and produced more excuses than cycling activity.

Hamilton man's lonely vigil continues "Uh...do the words "get a life" mean anything? Who is he to judge what's right or wrong? "The oath dates back to fifth or fourth century BCE," just goes to show how archaic some (mis)interpretations are to what this oath truly means. Look it up, no "

An LRT meeting about nothing
So what was that confab between Hamilton politicians and staff and Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca all about? A simple meet and greet? A media-generated story blown out of proportion in the dog days of summer? Political opportunism? How about all of the above.
Will the 'People's Platform' represent the voice of Hamilton's people?
A group of Hamilton citizens are trying to change the local municipal matrix and get potential politicians to listen to the public’s concerns. The Hamilton Civic League, with support from various social activist groups, such the Hamilton Chapter of the Council of Canadians, and the Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability, are encouraging people from across the city to participate in a series of forums over the next three months to identify the issues and possibly a vision for how they want their city to be governed over the next four years. The idea is to craft a list of issues that will become a “Peoples’ Platform” that candidates can either champion once they become councillors, or reject at their possible peril.

Political disconnect

The poverty gap
As the provincial election hits its mid-way point, it’s distressing to see that an essential issue, especially for Hamiltonians, has been avoided like the plague by the three main political parties.
A tale of two cities
Two conflicting visions of Hamilton were on stark display last week highlighting a growing solitude between the city’s urban and suburban residents and politicians.
Election
It’s the jobs, stupid
In every election the economy and job creation seems to find its way to the top of every candidate’s priority list and the current provincial election is no exception — losing about 300,000 manufacturing jobs usually catches politicians’ attention.
Election
Apathetic voters need inspiration
Election campaigns matter. And if those campaigns are even mildly interesting with a message that can captivate the public, they can also provide some hope to voters that they are not powerlessness in the game of government.
