|Farr, Laura||Yes||Working with the Community Benefits Network, I would ensure that our agreements include using Hamilton workers and products wherever possible. There is no reason for our community not to benefit from this project.|
|Kuruc, Ned||Yes||Regardless of whether the LRT goes ahead, it is important that we grow our transit network to tie together the entire city.|
|Nann, Nrinder||Yes||* I will advocate for Community Benefit Agreements that will provide employment and training opportunities to Hamiltonians. (I support Community Benefits Agreements at the city-wide level, not just for LRT).
* I'll ensure that businesses and residents along the B-line are well-informed of the timelines and kept abreast of changes.
* I'll ensure the HSR communicates clearly to riders what changes there may be in routes due to construction.
* I'll work with the community and businesses to help encourage local shopping during disruptions due to construction phases.
* I'll strongly advocate that any new transit jobs related to LRT meet the wages and benefits that our existing transit workers get, at a minimum.
|Smith, Dan||Yes||I will go over the designs thoroughly to ensure we have dealt with any issues that might arise from the system. As well, I will discuss any issues by talking to those affecting along the route.|
