QuestionBrief ResponseFull Response
Do you believe City Hall should be more accessible to Hamilton residents? If so, what steps would you take to achieve this? Yes YES, PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIME IN THEIR OFFICES RATHER THAN SITTING IN COFFEE SHOPS
The Province plans to allow municipalities to use ranked ballots in future elections. If so, will you vote to adopt ranked ballots in Hamilton? Maybe I have to read more detail about the ranked ballot
Do you believe Hamilton should do more to protect and enhance its built heritage? Yes Yes
Do you support the city's plan to build an east-west light rail transit (LRT) line with full capital funding from the Province? No I support the under ground LRT connected to all part of the city and also to main go station. This will also resolve two of other big issues that is building of roads over the cemented roof and replace the old sewerage system that is to kill the three birds with one stone. Cost and time will be needed more but the problem will be solved for next 100 years or more. I would like to have 100% funding from the province however if we have add some associate cost we should do it without raising the property taxes. We must find some other ways to generate the revenue
