Some business guy may receive $ for a project on the site of the former Shoppers Drug Mart?
I'm clearly naive, but why are municipal taxpayers subsidizing entrepreneurs? What happened to that old-school risk-reward paradigm. Is the Hamilton municipality flush with cash, or teetering on the edge like many medium-size cities?
As mentioned, I have much to learn about my new city.
