A N-S line is very important if we are to get citizens from all areas of the city on board(figuratively and literally). Transit nodes could be created at major intersections with E-W bus routes. Hopefully these intersecting bus routes could be converted to LRT in the future as ridership increases. A Smith, it is projects like this that can bring back our local and national manufacturing industries. Light rail systems need rails to run on, rails made in Hamilton. The vehicles that run on the rails could be built by Bombardier in Thunder Bay using parts built by other Ontario suppliers that have lost automotive parts contracts. This is not a hand-out, it is an opportunity to revitalize our economy.
