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

Statement by Ian Brisbin

I strongly believe that light rail is a truly transformative opportunity for the city of Hamilton, and for the entire Golden Horseshoe area. Given the transportation pressures that exist throughout southern Ontario, a viable, sustainable transportation alternative with mass appeal can only help to continue the momentum that is building in downtown Hamilton.

I fail to understand why all-day GO service, to move people in and out of Hamilton, should be given precedence over LRT which would serve to move people within the City, rather than each being considered to be complementary prongs of economic development planning.

I hope and trust that the key decision-makers at each level of governement will give appropriate consideration to the benefits that are sure to flow to our City with the introduction of LRT, hopefully in time for the 2015 PanAm Games.
