Responses to Questions (top)
|Hamilton's Cycling Master Plan has Council approval. However, the implementation timeline is very long and ward councillors can block individual bike lane projects. Do you support accelerating the completion of a continuous bicycle network and other initiatives like a bike sharing program and better access up and down the Escarpment? Why or why not?
|Yes I do support it.s completion, due the rising cost of vehicle insurance and fuel. The rising number of bikes and electric scooters on the road today are a sure sign of things to come.
|Do you support Hamilton's LRT proposal? If so, what will you do to ensure Hamilton's success in building LRT? If not, why do you oppose it?
|I would like to say upon just learning about this issue and not having done a full investigation into the matter that I could support a project to this effect. To implement its success, I would endorse its green features upon saving on individual car pollution and the price of our rising insurance and fuel. By the time LTR is fully implemented in our region no one may be able to afford to drive.
|For your campaign, will you be accepting donations from corporations or unions? If so, why? If not, why not?
|No I will not be accepting any donations or contributions at all. Although it is legal right to accept donations or contributions, everybody should have the same representation regardless of money.
|Is Hamilton doing enough to support and encourage new investment in our older neighbourhoods? If not, what should the City be doing?
|I think that the City of Hamilton should be encouraging more new investments in our older neighbourhoods by having incentives to come into the areas that once were flourished with small Mom and Pop shops.
It is a shame to see all the empty store fronts on our inner city streets and large new businesses being built on the out skirts and taking away what is left of our indigenous animals natural habitats.
