Category Archives: Garbage Crawl


Hey McMaster History Students have a lecture series going on and Hamilton cancels polling station there.  Also council tries to save itself from its own mistakes for arts?

Oh and one more thing, its election time and I want everyone out there in Hamilton to vote! Hamilton seems to have a very inefficent government based on taxing/ bylaw enforcing working businesses and letting abandoned buildings collect tax breaks. Everyone seems to be waiting for some big saviour, whether its walmart or redhill expressway to turn things around. I think Small business/ ordinary people can do a better job!

I know some people think voting is a joke but even if it is it’s a cruel one, ever wonder why Hamilton downtown is so bad? No votes!

That is why I just wanted to say this blog/site offically supports MATT JELLY FOR WARD TWO

Why?  The main reason is he’s done more for the city in the last year then I have seen from anyone else! He was organized garbage crawls/ Bylaw crawls in a effort to clean this city and get people into action on a concrete level. He’s discovered some nasty abandoned buildings that turned out held toxic chemicals. When did anyone else do this?

Also he’s new and I am not talking about him being young, Hamilton’s councillors seem to be in a semi-perminant state of suspended animation where all there opnions and ideas are all from a by gone era. Unacceptable!

Matt is one of the few with a actual background in the arts from being a musician/artist, I think he would add a fresh prespective to the lawyers/business people on council.

Hamilton deserves politicans who don’t just look at easy answers or think of quick solutions. Matt Jelly is passionate about civic issues and not just for artists or business people but for all people in this city.

I urge you to vote and vote for Matt!

A Message From Mr. Matt Jelly

This is a quick notice to let you know about a community cleanup event happening tomorrow morning in the Balsam neighbourhood, hosted by Parkview Secondary School. The cleanup happens tomorrow (Friday May 21st) at 10:30 am til 11:30 am, followed by a BBQ from 11:30 til 12:30. All are welcome to join the group and help beautify the neighbourhood. Hats off to Walter Bogul and the students of Parkview for taking this on- it’s always great to see citizens taking part to make the City a better place to live, work and play, and great to see educators inspiring young people to care about their neighbourhood. If you have some free time, please come down and lend a hand!

Also- on a completely unrelated note, I’ll be playing a show tomorrow night at This Ain’t Hollywood (345 James St. North) with Lee Reed and Nilla. It’s my unofficial birthday party, and I’m anticipating a great night of music. The show starts around 9 pm, and cover is 8 dollars, or 6 dollars with a canned good.

Famous Folks I know
