Thanks for that exciting report, Jason. It's good to know that there are models like this for other cities such as Hamilton to emulate.

And for the naysayers may I point out that the free transit lines (I presume that, like Calgary, only the ones downtown can be travelled at no charge) are not really free, they come at a very high cost. But along with the pedestrian-oriented sidewalks (yes, it seems like there is another kind) and the tree canopies, they are investments into a much more livable, exciting city, one not just for cars, but also for people.

Please consider distributing your comments and pictures to the decision-makers at City Hall and get them thinking some more about 21st century solutions to Hamilton's problems.
