The Pan Am Games and LRT are two separate issues. What Hamilton will get from the Pan Am games will be the crumbs and in the end more debt than benefits. With the LRT maybe in another 20 years before there are any coins on the plate, GO Transit may be polished up to satisfy that something is being done. Nothing will change in Hamilton unless it can demonstrate that it can have a strong impact on the provincial scene. That means getting it's house in order through better financial management and maintaining a tax base that demonstrates to the province we don't need them, then they will come, looking for Hamilton's support to satisfy their political needs. Then and only then, will this City get the credit it deserves.
