Wow! Phase 3 talk already, even before Phase 1 is complete.

You really should write Terry Whitehead a letter about this. If Terry wanted to stay in office, he would follow Ottawa's example and aid in A-Line LRT planning.

Ottawa population -- at a mere 883,900, barely almost double Hamilton's population -- has just got LRT funding approval for ~$5.1 billon combined ($2.1bn Phase 1, $3bn Phase 2).

With proportionate funding to Hamilton, in the right political climate, we'd have a complete A-Line LRT to the airport funded by 2022 election -- similar advance notice as Ottawa's phase 2 being fully funded by all levels of governments.

If Terry wanted to do some politicking over this, he really should be rallying his ward over a quick A-Line LRT extension while B-Line is still under construction.
