I don't live in Ward 8 and I made a suggestion for a solution above, but at the end of the day we all live in this City. If you lived in Ward Eight (which is not a suburb) and worked at Mac, you would not want to sit for three light changes a Dundurn and three light changes at Longwood and Main and then again at Columbia college and then again at Dalewood. You just want to get to work. It wouldn't be because you have "pea brain." There is no viable bus route, no mass transit at all for that matter, and all you want to do is maximize the time you are with your family and minimize the time you spend in your car.

Mac has been out in Westdale for nearly 100 years now and the routes - Mohawk, Fennell, Beckkett Drive, Aberdeen, Longwood and Main were there long before most of the people who live near Aberdeen now were even born.

There used to be an army tank manufacturer down on Aberdeen and Westinghouse and Camco. Presently Mac is one of the last major employers in Hamilton and it is not fair to call people who work there "pea brained" because they want to enjoy life as much as you do.

Some people will drive up Chedoke at 70k. Most people don't. Most people on Aberdeen during rush hour (not at other hours when they do speed) don't speed because they cant speed.

Fix the Road. Enforce the law. Don't insult people just because of where they live.
