The LRT - A Derailed Project?
As a millennial and a young teaching professional established in Hamilton in 2007, I can confidently state that the promise of a hustling and bustling city core yet to come was what made me relocate and remain in Hamilton. Stunning, historic downtown buildings rising from the ashes, the many new restaurants and cafés, universities and colleges expanding their campuses, bike lanes, networking opportunities for young entrepreneurs, co-working spaces, a bustling art scene and an art festival known Canada wide, somewhat affordable housing; these are also some of the things that have been attracting people to set base in Hamilton. Then there are those who were called solely by the siren calls of the LRT. $1,000,000,000 that is to be used on tracks, on cars, on the infrastructure needed to build it. Through my second part time job,I have been able to gain some insight into what the hardworking people and business owners of Hamilton really think about the much promised and talked about LRVs.
