So that would be my bet - rents aren't falling in Hamilton because the rate of people moving here from Toronto has increased.
That and people have been moving into Hamilton in numbers way above the supply. Toronto is building absolute shitloads of housing, so even a slight decrease in people moving into the city would affect it. Add to that immigration has all but stopped, and majority of those immigrants go to Toronto.

My goal is to improve my community, the transit we use to get around it, and the health and happiness of everyone in it, and I realize these are all interconnected.
