Ok Ben Bull, I support free wireless for downtown as proposed by Councilor Whitehead as way to attract people to the downtown district and I would also like to see ever child who starts school has a wireless laptop computer registered to them.

This could be funded from what's left of the Hamilton Hydro legacy fund, if the alderman haven't already drained it dry on pet projects for special interest groups.

The program would cost about $2 million at $200 each for a basic Dell Inspiron bought in bulk.

Don't worry, I checked. It's doable.

This would raise many children from poverty because knowlege empowers them to do so by doing better in school.

Ever child from one end of the city to the other would benefit and be on an equal footing as their peers in class, no matter their station in life.
