We need the LRT or some kind of large scale redevelopment in the core. When are the people in cityhall going to realise that they are governing as much for now as in the future. We are paying the price now for electing people who can't any further down the road then the end of their nose. The LRT will lead to new buildings and outside investment that the mayor thinks is lacking. The recent proposal for Queenston and Nash is a prime example of what the development can be. Imagine the king/main corridor as a modern gateway into the city instead of what we have today. A blight of rundown vacant vacant store fronts,empty lots where buildings once stood that now look like missing teeth in a once pretty smile. Sure it's a lot of money to get this in the ground but great projects that make the greatest changes aren't done on the cheap. As a tax payer I am willing to pay an additional $125 a year for the 10 yrs if that is what it is going cost to get this done. The potential long term benefits to the city and betterment to the way of life of all its citizens is what the current residents of cityhall should be really thinking about. I moved here a year ago from Mississauga for a better life and I am happy to say I found it here. The only thing standing in the way of the Hammer being a great city again like it once was is us. We need to get past this we are not worthy syndrome that seems to cripple this town,come on people get off your scooters and take a good look around at what have and what you could have. If you build it they will come.
