Hamilton councillors couldn’t talk about a $3.1 billion investment in their city without first losing quorum and then voting to defer any decision when they got too close to dinner time, thereby risking losing control of the entire LRT approval process until after the approaching summer recess.

A non-905 city you may have heard of thought it would plan for the thing their city very much lacks – a major landmark central park.
