Klazinga, Stewart Yes Absolutely.

We need to listen to young people and we need to value what they tell us, and we need to start talking to them as early as we can. We need to listen to what they want in a city and we need to work to provide it for them. We need to understand their hopes and fears and we need to assure them that we are the city in which they can best achieve them and avoid them respectively.
Maldonado, Juanita Yes YES to young people living here. YES to young people working here. YES to young people starting small business here.

Hamilton has gained acclaim because of its transportation corridor; i.e. access by land, water, air and rail. As Hamilton moves forward to fully fund a healthy transit plan, young people, and students building a future, are a critical part of its success.
