Statement by Ryan McGreal
I can't think of a better long-term economic stimulus than the Hamilton LRT plan. It is shovel-ready, meaning ground can break just as we're emerging from the coronavirus pandemic. The construction phase means thousands of well-paying jobs for 3-5 years, while the service itself will continue to energize Hamilton's economy for decades while growing the city's tax base without expanding its sprawl infrastructure obligations. This is a game-changer and a perfect use of stimulus funding during this time of extremely low interest rates.
