Open letter to Mayor and Hamilton City Council The sobering reality of Hamilton's CBD Let's keep the bridge a bridge A pathway to greater safety We need Jesse Ryder We need better shop fronts Letter: Rodeos are cruel Guy Fawkes irrelevant, end the fireworks Riff Raff corner needs a wall A halloween killjoy

 

We had an event, the V8s, that gave us international exposure for Hamilton, but now the mayor has turned Hamilton back into a cow town just because she got booed off the stage last year.

Just something to reflect on: the event ran for five years and had hundreds of thousands of fans visit Hamilton, bringing more than $125 million into the economy, plus sponsorship. That makes it a very profitable event. Where has all the money gone?
