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

Statement by Nicholas Kevlahan

LRT has the potential to transform and revitalize Hamilton by attracting development, protecting the environment and improving the city's image nationally and internationally.

Metrolinx and City staff have done numerous feasibility studies that have demonstrated the advantages of LRT over the alternatives. They have also engaged in unprecedented public consultation, and have documented overwhelming public support for the initiative.

In 2007 the provincial government promised to build two LRT lines in Hamilton. This promise must be kept.

The 30% engineering design and Environmental assessment will be finished by the end of the year. In January 2012 Hamilton's LRT project will be shovel ready.

Now is the time for the City and Province to work together to make LRT a reality in Hamlton!
