Imagine Hamilton's lower city with 100,000 more people packed into its neighbourhoods.

Keanin Loomis can imagine that new world. In fact, the president of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce says it has to become a reality if the city's economy is to grow.

Loomis told The Spectator's editorial board Tuesday that pushing the city's population to 650,000 over the next 20 to 30 years will provide the "critical mass" of people needed to support the controversial LRT transit plan....

Loomis said the public debate over the transit plan has paid too much attention to its cost rather than its potential benefits. Even Chamber of Commerce members remain deeply divided on the plan because of that focus.

"I wouldn't want to survey the members on this right now because I don't think the result would be good."
