No doubt, in terms of investment in transit and livable streets, Vancouver certainly leaves Hamilton the dust.
I do not want to turn this into a urban vs suburban issue......But
What would have happened in Vancouver if all of the surrounding regions had a vote on Vancouver's changes to its roads and transit? That is Richmond, Delta, Surry, Burnaby, Coquitlam and North Van and New West.
Unless I am wrong, Vancouver is not constrained by suburban votes in the same way Hamilton is. Plus they also benefit from transit improvements to GVRD as a whole, which allows them to draw on funding from outside the city coffers.
Still, no excuse for Hamilton not acting on strategic plans approved since 2001.
