Do you support converting more of Hamilton's one-way thoroughfares into complete, two-way streets that support walking, cycling and transit? No No i dont think making are one ways in 2 ways will help. just look at what they did to john and james the back up goes up to top of hill.

The City's Cycling Master Plan is up for review. Do you support improving the plan to speed the installation of cycling facilities and provide more high-quality protected infrastructure like the new Cannon Street cycle track? Maybe i give it time to reviewing as this first of besides we went over budget last time over 200000. dont want to make same mistake.

I think the question relies safety also maybe maybe droping speed to 40 km thru residental. also speed bumps thru the small streets.
The Province has shelved a proposal to build a mid-peninsula highway from Niagara Falls or Fort Erie around Hamilton to connect with Hwy 401 or 407 north of Burlington. Do you agree with the Province's decision to put its development on hold? Maybe that's really up to province we have no say in it really
