Would I be safer driving alone in my car?
Or crammed into a tram with a bunch of losers hacking up oysters and trying to wipe their nose on my coat?
Mozambique Wilson says,
DO THE MATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Despite begging...pleading....and lying our asses off.......
Despite including the names of dead people,imaginary people, really really stupid people.....people who think Wynne is still Premier, people who think Bratina is still Mayor......
Despite all of that, we still can't get the support of even 1/2 of 1% of Hamilton's population.
DO THE MATH DINGBATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is why people hate my fucking guts.
Rt.Hon. Catherine McKenna says,
we looked into this....and when we realized that your "vision" includes the destruction of every single tree at street level along the route.....we concluded.....
YOU HAVE TO BE FUCKING KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ARE YOU FUCKING NUTS??????/
You think I would support something so inherently bad for the environment???????

Michael Mileski says,
The LRT project will be a great equalizer for our city. Let's not delay any longer.
Nathan Savelli says,
LRT is a crucial piece of the puzzle in the city taking it's climate emergency declaration seriously. It is essential that we make this project happen.
David Murga says,
Having an LRT is important. Having come from Waterloo, I can say it is definitely worth it and really shows that Hamilton is moving forward. Not only will the LRT tackle the issue of the century: climate change, it will also create jobs in a time where unemployment has skyrocketed. It is important to note as well that a good chunk of the Hamilton population are student. By having the LRT it will be a win win situation. Student will be able to rely on the LRT for transportation to social events or just to go home and see their parents. This also means a lot of revenue from the students and university. It truly is an all around great addition to Hamilton
Dieter Klaus says,
Modern, efficient and environmentally friendly public transportation is the lifeline in any modern progressive city. It is high time that Hamilton catch up to what citizens in great cites all over the world take for granted.
And in this time of need for economic activity and recovery, building public infrastructure with high economic impact is extremely potent and of very long term effect.
Let's get on with building the LRT.
Graham Jeffries says,
I pulled out of my investment opportunity in Hamilton due to the LRT project being initially cancelled.
It would be very beneficial to Hamilton to develop a stronger working class that is able to retain the graduates of the two top post-secondary schools in our community.
Stephen Officer says,
Let’s get it done for the future of our city and for the benefit of all during this unprecedented time.
Cynthia Lokker says,
We need LRT, now more than ever, to stimulate economic recovery in Hamilton. This in addition to all the other benefits discussed ad nauseam.
Sheila Metzger says,
Yes LRT! Let's get this done!
Kurt Howlett says,
Hamilton needs light rail now more than ever. Not only is it a necessary step forward for the city's growth, but it will also help Hamilton recover economically. Light rail construction will create jobs. Let's get back on track and move forward with LRT.
Richard Moore says,
LRT is critical to city rebuilding after Covid19 and to encourage reinvestment in the downtown and East city corridor
Taylor Marchand says,
Graeme Luke says,
LRT will bring great jobs, enable smart development and reduce congestion. We need LRT, and we need it now more than ever.
David Wilkinson says,
My experience living in several European cities has convinced how effective an LRT will be in building the future of Hamilton
Craig den Ouden says,
Mike Addison says,
The Hamilton LRT project is a must. If not for bureaucratic red tape and political posturing it would have started years ago. Millions have already been put into the project and we now have assurance from the Feds for assistance. This will be a tremendous benefit for the city of Hamilton moving forward. Now more than ever jobs are needed in our city. Lets make this happen.
Sherry Westberry says,
Lrt is essential.
I will likely never use it.
Melissa Leaist says,
LRT in Hamilton has been debated and studied and planned for a decade. It is the cornerstone on a broader strategy to enhance sustainable public transit system city-wide at a time when the city has acknowledged the need to emphasize green technology and healthier communities. It's route has been selected based on density of ridership. The project includes infrastructure enhancement and has already prompted needed investment in our downtown core. We must move forward quickly and put an end to the debate once and for all.
Alex A says,
To Our Elected Officials,
As an investor and taxpayer in Hamilton, I am very disappointed in the political assassination of the broadly supported Hamilton LRT. Your creative accounting was an insult to the intelligence of your constituents, and particularly laughable coming from a "straight-talking administration".
It is not too late to re-evaluate, especially as we enter the post-Covid world. A capital project of this magnitude would support medium-term employment, revitalize a main street on life-support, and draw talent to Hamilton as jobs go increasingly remote.
rob taylor says,
The need for this is more apparent now due to the way our lives will be changing. The need for positive economic and climate responsible transportation has never been so great. I believe both lines should be built immediately which will give not only long term positive economic benefits but also massive construction benefits for the next several years.
Ryan McGreal says,
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.
Robert & Elaine de Ruiter says,
The amount of cars going or coming from downtown can’t continue as is. Please, people need to use LRT. It is up to us right now to secure this for future generations. People need to THINK instead of always just thinking about ME, ME, Me. Let’s think about the future now.
Adrian Clark says,
Stop with the political agenda. Fund what you promised at your election.
