Wow it's still expensive to live on central Hamilton mountain. Wages need to start matching cost of living. The city is becoming dirty. Where are our taxes going ? Wake up people.

Raised on Hamilton (mountain), live in Ancaster (suburb) now. Lots to do here, festivals, hiking trails ,waterfalls, sports. Great place to raise a family, good public schools, McMaster University one of the best.

This is a very colourful place filled with artists, hipsters and yuppies. Hamilton is to Toronto what Harlem or Queens is to Manhattan.
