A boondoggle in the making? – Hamilton’s cancelled LRT project may be coming back to life

Published in the Toronto Sun, 16 February 2021

Re: “Ford promises $1 billion of your money for Hamilton’s LRT disaster,” (Brian Lilley, Toronto Sun, 13 February): Brian is right that the Hamilton LRT is a project that’s not wanted. Even my Liberal-supporting mother, who was raised in Hamilton and is a graduate of McMaster University, doesn’t support the LRT project.

Hamilton doesn’t need an LRT, let alone one that serves such a small portion of the city.

This is looking to be yet another one of the many boondoggles over which Hamilton City Councils, going back many, many decades, have presided.
