Bureau, Alain Yes
Farr, Laura Yes Working with the Community Benefits Network, I would ensure that our agreements include using Hamilton workers and products wherever possible. There is no reason for our community not to benefit from this project.
Kuruc, Ned Yes Regardless of whether the LRT goes ahead, it is important that we grow our transit network to tie together the entire city.
Nann, Nrinder Yes * I will advocate for Community Benefit Agreements that will provide employment and training opportunities to Hamiltonians. (I support Community Benefits Agreements at the city-wide level, not just for LRT).

* I'll ensure that businesses and residents along the B-line are well-informed of the timelines and kept abreast of changes.

* I'll ensure the HSR communicates clearly to riders what changes there may be in routes due to construction.

* I'll work with the community and businesses to help encourage local shopping during disruptions due to construction phases.

* I'll strongly advocate that any new transit jobs related to LRT meet the wages and benefits that our existing transit workers get, at a minimum.
Smith, Dan Yes I will go over the designs thoroughly to ensure we have dealt with any issues that might arise from the system. As well, I will discuss any issues by talking to those affecting along the route.
Sprague, Kristeen Yes
