I stand corrected, you're correct the city does own the Jackson Square land itself and holds some pretty substantial power as to what can be done with it:IIRC the city does own the Jackson square land, it’s just leased on a 99 year term to the landlord.
They really need to raise the issue of revitalizing the entire area. It seems siilly to me they would focus on First Ontario Centre, First Ontario Concert Hall, and the Hamilton Convention Centre; while keeping Jackson Square untouched. Different owners and entities involved of course, but there needs to be a master plan for that entire section of the core.
