For the Torontonian (and related area) readers (or even Toronto-phile readers), my local paper is doing a series on the metropolising of the Toronto area. Yesterday's paper featured (even on the front page) the 6 year process of amalgamating the Toronto area, and today's paper features Hamilton.

The reason for this series is because Pittsburgh and areas around us are considering amalgamating various towns to reduce overall budget costs. I guess they're looking to the successes and failures of other cities to consider if this is a good idea for us. Not a bad series, actually, and a worthy consideration.

The reason I found the articles myself is while looking through the pile of papers that keep arriving on the front porch for an article about one of our local IMCsters and his brush with the Secret Service.
