Here is my submission:

Good Day to our local representatives:

re: This article posted on Raise the Hammer

I am writing to day, to talk about the light rail in Hamilton and why it is taking so long to implement this. I am very active in the community on issues relevent to poverty and as a member of the Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability Benefits, we have continually tried to address this issue, as so many in our community struggle. The goal of obtaining of good paying, living wage jobs, is a path to empowerment for the people.

I am not a expert on rail but I do see this as an opportunity for the future for our city. Since the economy, the environment and social justice issues are tied together, it would seem to me that this would be a driving factor for Hamilton to rebuild as a community.

I am trusting, the many in our community who say that this will kick start the community, that jobs will come forward, as an end result, which are so desparately needed for those who are the working class. The only concern I would have, is that it is affordable, so that those who are low income or on some type of social assistance can use this service.

Thank you for listening
