Millgrove meeting was a success: CFF

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Mayor Larry Di Ianni finally admitted on CHML Thursday, November 17, why amalgamation is not working for Flamborough, although he probably did not realize it at the time.

Following a successful town hall meeting in Millgrove sponsored by the Committee To Free Flamborough, a crowd of approximately 250 citizens listened to presentations that included remarks from three Hamilton Councillors. They all spoke of the failure of amalgamation of the suburbs into the mega city. While ignoring two of the three, Mayor Di Ianni lashed out at Bob Bratina on air and in the press, accusing the "rookie councilor" of playing "dangerous politics" - whatever that means. During the radio debate the Mayor accused the councilor of failing to realize that the old city ward he represented has been able to "reap the benefits" of amalgamation.

Bingo! There you have it. The old city of Hamilton has indeed for five years been reaping the benefits of amalgamation. How? By financially raping the suburbs. Call it de-amalgamation, boundary adjustment or restructuring. We don't care. We just want out! P.S Thank you Bob Bratina for your words of wisdom and truth. Should you ever decide to run for Mayor, you have my vote.
