QuestionBrief ResponseFull Response
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? No The LRT is no different than a street car in TOronto and atreet cars have add little to the economy, job creation, the reduction of congestion or anything for the poor. It is not necessary and will be a tax burdon for years to come.
Is Hamilton doing enough to support and encourage new investment in our older neighbourhoods? If not, what should the City be doing? No In my opinion more can be done. As a former Torontonian, I was surprised to see how many good assets Hamilton has, but have never effectively marketed them to businesses to relocate in Hamilton.
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? No I have familiarised myself with the Cyling Master Plan. However, in these difficult economic times when many people in our comunity are experiencing difficulty with food and shelter, I do not see the implimentation of a Bike Plan as a priority at this time.
