Ken Hammill is wondering whether "downtown" is a bad word. He suggests instead that the area be called "the city's core."
I ran into him at a public open house regarding encouraging investment in the downtown. But that kind of things isn't just about downtown, Hammill said. It's about improving the heart of the city, something he says everyone will benefit from.
It'll be interesting to see how this council continues to deal with issues of the downtown as other things like the south-end recreation centre and York lands come knocking.
