A varied group of local educators, businesspeople, citizens and others, from the Labour Council to the Chamber of Commerce have joined forces around a letter prepared by the Hamilton Civic Coalition urging Hamilton city council to reverse its recent decision to hike HSR fares.
No longer can city council try to brush off transportation advocates as 'nutty activists with no jobs'.
In 2007, virtually anyone who understands the very basics of building a proper, successful city knows how vital transit is to the equation.
Let's all urge council to do the right thing and continue to grow the HSR, not treat it like frill or social service.
Of course, while we're at it, let's also urge the hiring of a staff member to work in the cycling office and begin to spend the cycling money on long-stalled but already funded projects we desperately need in Hamilton.
