Statement by Seema Narula
I have already voiced my opinion with both the mayor and my city counsellor. I believe that light rail transit will do wonders to revitalize the downtown core, and to bring business back to the community. It will increase pedestrian traffic, and attract people who want to live in urban centres without having to have a car. People who live in Hamilton, will be able to move across the city with greater ease, and it will give those people that do drive a car another option to leave their cars at home, reducing car congestion on streets and reducing carbon pollution. There is already the population and ridership to support LRT. By having LRT in Hamilton this will put Hamilton on a competitive playing field with regards to other developing and growing cities and communities like Kitchener Waterloo, who are getting LRT, and who will be attracting competing business investment and potential new residents, who are moving from Toronto in search of cities that are more affordable but that still enable the convenience and lifestyle of urban living.
