Please support making Hamilton's shovel ready LRT project a catalyst for post-COVID economic revitalization!
One of the main arguments for LRT has always been its ability to massively boost Hamilton's economy both during the 3-5 year construction period and during the lifetime of the project.
Now, more than ever, Hamilton needs the thousands of construction jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars of local investment LRT construction will provide. The project is ready to go: we were just waiting for the final bids to come in when the project was paused in December.
The federal government has expressed willingness to fund Hamilton's LRT and federal funding will make the project even more affordable to the Province and the City.
Please ensure all levels of government work together to build LRT. We need it now more than ever!
