The City's LRT plan has $1 billion in provincial funding. Tell Premier Ford to get Hamilton's LRT back on track.

Statement by Bryan Webber

We moved to Hamilton in Jan 2018. One of the attractions was the city’s progressive transit plan that included LRT. In the fall of 2018, I canvassed extensively for my ward candidate that was pro LRT, and she won. I also supported Mayor Eisenberger, as a pro LRT Mayoralty candidate, and he won. Premier Ford acknowledged this democratic outcome and committed his support to the project.

The decision to withdraw this support, with a confusing interpretation of the project’s capital and operating costs is unjustifiable, and easily corrected with a retraction.

Let’s get on with this overdue and fully considered investment, that will prove to be a strategic decision in the renewal of this city.
