Votes Cast for Statements
When was the last time a senior level of government gave Hamilton a billion dollars?
The answer is never.
Done properly, and connected to the mountain and suburbs with better than adequate public transportation LRT can be a game changer for this city. Those who are now raising questions are merely posturing for the next election which is regrettable but not unexpected.
I hope common sense prevails and LRT moves forward because trust me, if we say no to the billion this city will be written off by the Province and we certainly can't afford that.
LRT Crisis Averted, For Now
LRT support at yesterday's meeting was overwhelming, and Council did not vote to kill the project or defer it to a 2018 ballot question. However, some councillors are still trying to undermine the project.
