There’s a big discussion on in Hamilton over the future of the city’s so-called gas ball. For decades, the painted eight-storey globe has reminded QEW motorists that Hamilton is, in fact, the centre of the world. The city is considering painting it over – potentially with ads.
More on what’s being proposed for the iconic gas ball:
- Possible design changes to globe would be ‘destroying history’
- Opinion: Leave Hamilton’s gas ball exactly as it is
- Gas Ball – will Hamilton vanish from the face of the earth?
Some flashbacks of the ball, which many Hamiltonians want to save.
