Seven former mayors and regional chairs are the latest to enter Hamilton’s LRT debate.
The group has penned a letter in support of the project, arguing that it will be a great benefit for the community by attracting new investment and new jobs.
It adds that LRT will mean rising property values and assessment and create significant economic uplift, not only for the downtown, but for the entire city.
The letter concludes by Council to re-affirm its commitment to continue working with Metrolinx on the $1-billion, fully funded by the province initiative.
The group boasts more than 100 years of combined leadership and has strong suburban representation, including past mayors of Stoney Creek, Ancaster and Flamborough.
