My guess is that it would go here, in the empty space in front of the west wing...

Sad they didn't listen to my idea of putting it on the escarpment but at least its slightly different than the Toronto and Ottawa ones (which are basically copies of each other).

Oh Hamilton. That rip-off of the Toronto sign won't bring you fame and fortune. Oyoyoy.

Still, it makes for a great photo-op when you're visiting a city.

I suppose it does. The Hamilton sign is actually kind of cool with its 3D effect.

It's all catering to the millennials, selfie obsessed generation.

Personally I don't care since it didn't cost taxpayers, all private money. However, I kinda wish it was at Gore Park or somewhere on James St N. Hopefully they'll move it over time.

I'm pretty sure the selfie-obsessed generation is going par with the polaroid-obsessed generation. Let's speak not of the brownie-obsessed generation.

The city has finally announced which artist will get to replace the aged-and-removed mural on McBride's Hill. Julie Lewis' submission of a mural commemorating the Great Fire of 1892 won and she'll be starting shortly.
