Tour, Day 12: Hamilton

In Hamilton, a lively crowd packed into Sylvia Nickerson's little studio.

Hamilton is a fascinating little city, with a strong history of working-class labour organizing, but a rather depressed economic situation at present.

Local radio show The Other Side showed up, and there seemed to be a fair bit of interest in organizing a local media coop. A number of folks signed up as sustainers, and a decent discussion was had.

We stuck around for the art crawl the following day, before leaving early in the morning for Windsor.
