Ok, I'm sure there are a certain amount of people that live in Burlington that put Hamilton down as a dirty city. But then, as someone growing up in London, we did the same thing.
I live on the east mountain now and really enjoy living there. I am a short 15-20 minute walk from Kings Forest and the escarpment which is gorgeous for walking in around the golf course. And can walk behind Henderson Hospital for another beautiful escarpment walk. People I know who live in Burlington don't have such a beauty as this nearly as close to them. Hamilton truly is a beautiful city, much nicer than London for sure, or most of Burlington from what I see, other than the steel factories which are easily avoided. The escapment and bayfront trails are absolutely priceless.
And the Ticat faithful from Burlington, while I don't know the numbers, are fantastic, they are the smart ones knowing we have a great Hamilton-Burlington relationship going here, better than relating to Toronto and all the traffic there, and that huge bowl like stadium they call the Rogers Centre.
