Hamilton City Council -
For the good of our great city move forward with this once in a generation opportunity to make a substantial improvement to our transportation situation. This will also have positive impacts on environment, economy and our overall community.

I think the LRT is key to moving Hamilton onto a par with other great cities in the world. It's an opportunity to move people easily and quickly across Hamilton from east to west without the reliance on cars.

Build that LRT!
Alissa Simard says,
To Whom it May Concern,
I am taking a moment as a resident of Hamilton in an area most impacted by the construction of the LRT to make sure that you do everything to move the LRT past this final hurdle.
The project has been funded. The LRT is needed for Hamilton to move forward, for our economy, to give people jobs in this horrendous pandemic environment as well as through it. The LRT is a logical response to the gentrification that you as politicians are welcoming into the downtown core for the sake of growing Hamilton. So please don't cripple Hamilton's evolution by stalling this project during it's last hurdle.
If you care about Hamilton at all, any of you in opposition need to put your feelings aside because stalling this project at this point in time and space works directly AGAINST Hamilton and it's best interests now and into the future. This is not about you. Please don't mess this up for Hamilton by voting against the LRT in this last hurdle. Let the LRT be built so Hamilton can become bigger and better not only for us but for future Hamiltonians. This is your legacy moment. Make the LRT happen.
Sean St Cyr says,
PLEASE APPROVE THIS WE NEED THIS FOR OUR CITY IT WOULD IMPROVE TRANSPORTATION SO MUCH!!!
Donna Weldon says,
I am delighted to hear that progress on LRT continues and that this week you will be signing the Memo of understanding with Metrolinx! Hurray! It is greaa as t to see councils continued commitment to this project.
Ian May says,
Please vote to approve this project as it will help people today and into the future.
Doug Niessen says,
It is not a matter of if the project will move forward but when. If we wait until when arrives it will cost the taxpayers a lot more than if we build it now. This project makes sense now when the demand and cost are bearable.
Theresa McCuaig says,
Thank you for completing Council's original bargain to bring LRT to Hamilton. Sign the second MOU, please.
Tom Weisz says,
The incessant dithering needs to stop. Let's get shovels into the ground already. Further delay just creates additional costs.
The workers of the city need the work, the city will benefit from the completion, and the additional benefits of improving hidden infrastructure will stand us in good stead for decades to come. We will manage the inevitable mess - we're not that whimpy of a city.
Giulio Amodeo says,
My business has me advising real estate developers. Many projects being considered are contingent on the go-ahead of the LRT project. This is necessary to have Hamilton move forward. Please don't screw this up for the City of Hamilton.
Guntars Silders says,
Please support the LRT. Hamilton needs a alternative to the car.
Dean Fulton says,
Please move forward with the LRT for Hamilton. It's time for this progressive, environmentally responsible project to commence. Thank you
James Clairmont says,
PLEASE don't drop the ball this time. Hamilton needs LRT
