Good morning members of Council. I am pleased to be here today to represent the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber has an LRT task force that comprises representatives from our Divisions and Committees, City Council (Councillors Farr, Ferguson and McHattie as well as the Mayor), Hamilton HIVE, the Realtors Association of Hamilton Burlington and the Hamilton Halton Home Builders Association.
The Hamilton Chamber has had a long-standing policy position of supporting public transit infrastructure – both all-day two-way GO Train service and LRT. As we know, the GO Train project is proceeding.
Today is about LRT and my comments will build on those that I shared at both the October 11, 2011 and December 11, 2012 meetings of the GIC.
We are here to speak in favour of staff’s recommendations in today’s report.
