Barry Spruce Maybe Again the same approach would apply to the response on the Light Rail question. A key objective for the Freedom Party is to change the culture of our current society, we need to work with Business and government operations, to encourage more flexible time to be in the office, so as to avoid high volume of traffic at Rush Hours, and as well promote work from home where it is feasible, with today's technology it is very possible to work from home in many types of business operations, this can help reduce the load of traffic on the roads.
Raymond Dartsch No Absolutely not, Hamilton has lost enough green space and agricultural land. The only way to ease "congestion" is by a massive buildout of public transit and changes in land use.
Ted McMeekin No When the PCs were in power they did a scoped EA that was not in keeping with the Environmental Assessment Act. Our government did a fully scoped EA looking at all options. It concluded the mid-pen was not needed. The recommendation was to build a link highway from Welland along 406 corridor and select widening of the 403. Our broad community continues to reject a new super highway that would transgress rural lands and environmentally sensitive areas.
