@ Mr. Lester,

I agree that we have to be fiscally responsible, but unfortunately, we need provincial money to improve transit. Our suburbs to the east have become Toronto bedroom communities, which has been facilitated by GO train service that we are lacking. I'm not crazy about Hamilton having "Bedroom status" but it is not the end of the world. Perhaps it is a step to the next level. When people begin to move here, the potential for the city may well be unlocked. In order to increase the tax base, we need increased pop. density. That will not happen unless transit is improved. We also need provincial money to help remediate brownfields in the north end that once drove Ontario's economy. Why would a company set up on a brown field, when green field sites are indirectly subsidized by our constant expansion of roads and highways? I am not saying we should play some kind of victim card, I'm just asking for a level playing field from the province.
