Elections

Council has voted dozens of times since 2008 to advance Hamilton's light rail transit (LRT) project, including voting to submit the plan with a full funding request to the Province in 2013, and voting to accept full funding and implementation from the Province in 2015. Do you support completing the LRT plan? Why or why not?

Maldonado, Juanita No I support fully funding the transit system. I do not see the benefit of rails in the ground. There are so many other innovative, energy efficient progressive ways to move people across the City – on the hill and down below.
