Hey I very frequently take HSR from DUNDAS to Hamilton General Hospital for work. I very much support the light rail initiative.
My son had an accident last year and was wheelchair bound for 6 months - thankfully recovering now. It really shone a light on what life is like for people who use wheelchairs and mobility issues. LRT would be a massive help as they board at the same level as the vehicle, no more driver assisted ramp requirements, or only 2 wheelchair capacity like most busses have.
You can definitely tell from how people voted in Ward 13 for Mayoral election - we voted overwhelmingly for mayors who support LRT.
