"It has extremely hot and humid summers."

As someone who grew up in Niagara and holds a geography degree, that's news to me!

Hamilton has for real is staking all the welfare cases and disability people for Oakville, georgetown.toronto,and alot for from burlington too! Then people accuse Hamilton to be bums? Give me a break! Trust me Hamilton doesnt want Torontos problems and Hamilton is not holding thriving by having a NHL team!All toronto does is how bad it stinks because of that garbage strike and how bad thier police are currupt! In the old days when ever toronto would screw things up, Hamilton would come over to clean it up!Thats plain truth and history so read it and weep nahers!

Getting a little worked up there are we?

Hamilton is not annoying, it's historic.

Did you know...?

When Tim Hortons opened their first store on Ottawa Street the price of their doughnuts was 39 cents a dozen. Yes, a dozen! :slight_smile:

Did you know...?

Where Ivor Wynne stands now, the location used to be called Scott's Park?


What's annoying are some of the inaccuracies with this. As Paul said Hamilton isn't part of the Niagara Region. I don't know how it is considered the 3rd largest city in Ontario, Toronto, Ottawa and Mississauga are larger unless Mississauga is lumped into Toronto's CMA. I don't know of any intense Hamilton-Ottawa competition? Toronto...yes! Four universities? Mac and who are the other three? Is there a DeVry campus on Main Street that I don't know about?

They might be counting Redeemer (now a university), Mohawk College, and Columbia College as universities...

Brock has a campus here too
