Two years ago today, Yosif Al-Hasnawi intervened when two men were harassing an older man on the streets of Hamilton. A confrontation occurred. Within minutes, Yosif had been shot. Left on the sidewalk by paramedics who didn't take his injuries seriously. He died an hour later.
Last week, Yosif's killer was set free. He was a meth dealer, had used meth & alcohol that night, and was illegally carrying an unlicenced, loaded, restricted weapon. He flashed his gun at Yosif, and his friend sucker punched Yosif in the head 2 or 3 times. They ran away laughing
When Yosif chased them after being punched, Dale King turned around and shot him dead. A jury found him not guilty. He said it was self defence. Yosif is dead. His killer walks free. Not guilty of murder. No gun charges. No assault charges. No drug charges.

1/ The more I hear from #YellowVests, Northern Guard, PEGIDA, and their various buddies - the folks who pull things like attacking the Pride parade in #HamOnt last week - the more I think of Umberto Eco's 14 hallmarks of fascism. Let's dive in:
2/ The simplest summary I know comes from a blogger named Paul Bausch:…
3/ For a little more detail, OpenCulture matched Bausch's summary with Eco quotes:…

Oh #HamOnt I love this city, but I guess like everywhere there is always racist assholes lurking around.
My boyfriend one of my most favourite people on earth is Indigenous, full Native
He’s working away, foreman for a landscaping company. Asked a resident of an Upper Gage housing complex if he could move his car back about 3 feet from the curb because he didn’t want the grass trimmings or rocks to get all over the car while they cut, trimmed and blow the site.

There can be no doubt that the Ontario Government Student Choice Initiative will have a profound impact on campus life & the student experience. The effect will also be felt by surrounding communities of each university and college campus. #fundedbystudentfees #ONpoli #onpse
The impact of a system asking students to opt out of fees they don’t use or wish to pay, will dramatically impede a student unions ability to function. #fundedbystudentfees #ONpoli #onpse
Much like it would destroy any municipal, provincial or federal government tax base if tax payers were given the ability to choose which taxes they want to pay. #fundedbystudentfees #ONpoli #onpse

I'm at #HamOnt GIC. We're talking the future of FirstOntario centre, the transportation management plan, etc. Right now, Jasper Kujavsky, the Mercantis & Scott Warren are presenting
They're urging the city to create an entertainment "precinct." Worth noting: PJ Mercanti has said, after media questions, that this does NOT include a casino. The casino plan is dead
The staff report today recommends a 3rd party review into what kind of facility Hamilton needs (size, location, etc), ownership & mgmt models that have worked elsewhere, whether to cluster our sports/ent facilities into a "precinct" with residential & commercial development, etc

Jury is ready to start at the #Styres murder trial. Quick reminder that I can only report on what happens in the courtroom, in front of the jury. #hamont
Crown O’Brien is addressing fact that yesterday Det. Wilson was asked to measure from passenger door of the car to the man door of the breezeway: 11’6.6”.
Next Crown witness is Tamara McGillivray. She is with @hamiltonpolice. On the job since April 7, 1999. On night of shooting she was in forensics unit. #hamont #styres

Sometimes it's the little things, the pilot projects & experiments that have the biggest city-building impact. In no particular order, here's a thread of #coollittlethings the City of #HamOnt did in 2017 ... and a shoutout to my staff who made them happen
1/ Special loading zones for musicians outside concert venues as part of our #MusicCity strategy #coollittlethings #hamont (thx to staff in Culture and Parking)
2/ The "Mountain Climber" pilot project = free bus rides up the #NiagaraEscarpment for #cyclists #coollittlethings #hamont (thx to HSR and Transportation Planning staff)
