It astounds me that despite a clear, reasoned, researched case for LRT that is broadly supported within our community, our local and provincial politicians are still dragging their feet on this. As taxpayers we are contributing to building the transit infrastructure across this province. It is only reasonable, and fair, that our city can also benefit from this much need provincial transit investment. It is time that Hamilton stops being left behind. It is the responsibility of our municipal leadership to fight for what we deserve, and it is more than time for our provincial representatives to advocate on our city's behalf to ensure we are at the front of the line for funding on transit. This is about supporting the dynamic change that is already being built in our city by citizens, neighbours and communities. Please uphold the promise to invest in Hamilton's future.
