The City's LRT plan has $1 billion in provincial funding. Tell Council to take YES for an answer.

Statement by David Cohen

The LRT will make public transit not only respectable in Hamilton but desirable. We should embrace it. A city that depends on the automobile for the vast majority of its citizens' trips (as Hamilton does) is not a real metropolis. It is an oversized suburb.
We should not "wait" for the LRT. The city should be making significant infrastructure changes NOW. One such change would be to re-convert major one-way throughfares (King, Main, Cannon) to two-way to facilitate greater circulation in the city. (One-ways are a 1950's solution to traffic congestion, which is when they were introduced in Hamilton.) Such a change would speed up the creation of the conditions for re-development at important intersections (eg. Dundurn and King, Main and Longwood, etc.) envisioned once the LRT is implemented.
