Statement by Chris Ewing-Weisz
As a Hamilton resident who works with people of all income levels from across the city, I see a huge need for the prompt completion of the promised LRT. It would allow transit-dependent people to cross the city much more expeditiously than is currently possible -- important to allowing our most vulnerable citizens to access jobs and training -- and would encourage others who currently drive to take transit, relieving both congestion and pollution. Few projects can claim to do so much for so many.
Having the LRT would also bring much-needed economic development into the core area, and provide the key initial artery of an eventual broader rapid transit system that could tie the whole city together.
The province must not renege on promised resources that will make such an important difference to Hamilton and Hamiltonians.
