Agree with equal no of councillors for East and West. But that's all I approve of. It is unfair in this century that we still make divisions based on a person's race. Councillors should be placed in council based on votes. Not based on their race and a treaty that was signed many years ago. While I respect the treaty it is unfair to create racism in our community for political gain. Everyone should be treated equally regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender. I believe such decisions that are made for political reasons violates human rights and violates the right of every other person from different races living in Hamilton.
