Hard to believe it has been a year.

Mar 8 2013:

In a recent interview with The Hamilton Spectator, Transport Minister Glen Murray seemed to indicate Hamilton wouldn't have to make a direct capital contribution to construct its $800 million project.

"They're not going to be expected to, in the sense that we're not asking them to make a financial contribution with a very specific tax," Murray told The Spectator.

However, reached today, the minister clarified his statements and said Hamilton would be expected to fund some of the project. He said municipalities, including Mississauga, that are having trouble paying for their transit projects will be given access to yet-to-be announced revenue tools and financing options. Municipalities will find out in the summer what these tools are.
