During the past 10 years of commuting between Hamilton and Burlington, I've been joking to myself that I will retire before Lakeshore West gets modernized.

Then the James North station was announced and suddenly there was hope for us to participate in a transit renaissance in the GTA. I thought, electrification and all day service between TO and Niagara? In my lifetime? Beautiful steps forward!

Nope, not happening. I get the impression that Metrolinx wants to implement some amazing projects but there is no political will.

So people will sit on the QEW/401 like sardines in cans and we will all breathe smog and avail of Hamilton's bustling cancer center. Hopefully public and political will changes and this situation is not for much longer.

Also I'm experiencing commuting burnout just as described in the article. Fortunately time on the GO train is spend reading and relaxing.
