NDP leader Andrea Horwath just called on the Ontario Government to step up and commit the money to build LRT in Hamilton. A press release the NDP issued today quotes Horwath in Question Period:
We know that badly needed transit lines in Toronto are being mothballed as a result of [the recently announced $4 billion in cuts to transit funding]. Hamiltonians are understandably worried that their city's LRT plan will meet a similar fate. Hamilton can't go ahead with its plan without provincial approval and funding.
She goes on:
If construction doesn't start very soon, the lines won't be ready in time for the Games. The Premier should do the right thing and guarantee that Hamilton's LRT money will flow this year.
