So Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is in town ... riding in a caravan of full-size SUVs. Atta way to protect the environment.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant. Ryan volunteers with Hamilton Light Rail, a citizen group dedicated to bringing light rail transit to Hamilton. Ryan writes a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. He also maintains a personal website and has been known to post passing thoughts on Twitter @RyanMcGreal. Recently, he took the plunge and finally joined Facebook.

From his latest statement I just read in the spectator: "It means we should be looking to buy the most fuel-efficient vehicle that we possibly can.

"And it means that we should be supporting all of the new kinds of research that we are trying to nurture in Ontario that gets us into a cleaner car, ideally a car that we wean away from oil and gasoline ultimately."

No mention of transit, apparently the private vehicle standard for personal transportation isn't negotiable.

The spec's other main headline was 15 million going to McMaster for auto manufacturing research from the ontario government.
