I read the report too, and I'm not all that impressed. Hamilton will be on the hook for millions and millions of dollars on top of the base price. Hamilton is $600 million in debt and needs almost a billion dollars to upgrade the water and waste water sewage system to even remotely continue with development of any sort. We also are asking for another $14.5 million to cover increased administration costs of government programs and salary increases for staff such as EMS, fire and police services. The only way LRT will come to Hamilton is when Metrolynx pays 100% of the costs to build it. Most present Councilors will be long-gone by then. I predict half will be gone in the fall at the ballot box.
