Yestderday, Joey Coleman of The Public Record recorded the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce business roundtable in which the organization considered the city's light rail transit (LRT) plan.
If you are still not sure why the LRT initiative is important to Hamilton's future, you have to watch the address by Flamborough resident Bill Elliott in which he recounts his experiences with LRT in Calgary, Edmonton and Waterloo region, both as a resident and as a consultant working with cities to attract investment.
Talking about the Waterloo LRT investment, Elliott said, "People finally got it, that an investment anywhere in Waterloo Region was good for all parts of Waterloo Region. Unfortunately, we're not there yet in Hamilton, even though we do have the benefit of all being called Hamilton."
You can also watch the full recording of the meeting. The Flamborough Chamber of Commerce has not yet taken a position on the city's LRT plan.
Please take a few moments to tell Council to take YES for an answer, reaffirm its support for LRT and accept the full capital funding from the Province that Council has consistently voted for since 2008.
