Joey Coleman: Taking Hamilton to hell in a car

Taking Hamilton to hell in a car

Hamilton’s civic leaders are driving our city into the ground with their “driveway-to-driveway” obsession.

The latest example?

The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s demand for a parking spot for each and every one of their administrative employees as a condition for staying downtown.

Never mind the benefits to students from having the Board’s senior management located in promixity to social service managers, the community foundation, city hall, and other partners working to address poverty in our community.

What good is eliminating poverty if you have to do it in a carpool?
