Noth­ing wrong with be­ing dif­fer­ent

RE: Hamil­ton looks at rais­ing street park­ing fees (Feb. 22)

It seems the city has dis­cov­ered park­ing rates in Hamil­ton are low among cities of sim­i­lar size. That is a good sign. But to the city’s man­age­ment and coun­cil they only see it as a money grab. The city fig­ures we should up the rates. Why do coun­cil and city man­age­ment think we have to do things just like ev­ery­one else? I’m not just talk­ing about park­ing rates. The city has an ac­tual di­vi­sion of peo­ple whose re­spon­si­bil­ity it is to in­ves­ti­gate other cities in North Amer­ica to get ideas on how the city should progress into the fu­ture. What ever hap­pened de­vel­op­ing our own ideas and paths to the fu­ture? There is noth­ing wrong with be­ing dif­fer­ent and some­times be­ing dif­fer­ent is bet­ter for the city res­i­dents.
