I think Edmonton's example is admirable and a good idea for Hamilton. Encouraging transit use is a prudent use of city dollars, and keeping kids physically fit helps their overall health, mental agility and emotional development. It's all good and pays the community back in the long run.

Some corporate support and sponsorship wouldn't hurt either, because someone needs to help pay for it and these kids and their families aren't exactly asking for a handout at $87 per child -- that's a ton of money for many families to fork over all at once. Tim Horton's should be all over this!!!

And at a time when food and fuel costs are rising, it isn't any easier raising kids now, is it?
