Light Rail

Letter: LRT is Visionary, Ambitious, Compelling, Game-Changing

Dear Council,

LRT. Simple. Short. Only three letters long.

What it represents though is so much more. As a supporter of LRT, it says to me - visionary, ambitious, compelling, game-changing. Just the way I like my city to be.

These are the same words that should inspire you, as Councillors, to make the right decision and support LRT. They should also be the words all citizens use to describe your attitudes, your actions, and your impact on each and every one of us.

This is the role of visionary leadership - to see the path forward, and to inspire others to follow you as you work to realize your vision.

You have my full support for LRT. I trust that, in return, your leadership will be just as evident.

Sincerely,

Graham Crawford Hamilton HIStory + HERitage

Graham Crawford was raised in Hamilton, moving to Toronto in 1980 where he spent 25 years as the owner of a successful management consulting firm that he sold in 2000. He retired and moved back to Hamilton in 2005 and became involved in heritage and neighbourhood issues. He opened Hamilton HIStory + HERitage on James North in 2007, a multi-media exhibition space (aka a storefront museum) celebrating the lives of the men and women who have helped to shape the City of Hamilton.

Akbar

Yes I am fat. The thing is though if I put my mind to it, I could lose weight. You on the other hand will always be stupid.
