City Councillors are asking for a meeting with Ontario’s Liberal Minister of Transportation after Glen Murray ruffled some feathers during an interview with Bill Kelly on CHML earlier this week.
Murray indicated that the province needs Hamilton to roll up its sleeves and come to the table for talks in regards to light rail transit funding.
He suggested the province needs, “something a little more clear from Hamilton than to pay for it all”.
Wait a second, hasn’t Hamilton city council been very clear on this from the get go, that they were in, if the province paid the bill?
Why is the province now changing its tune?
Councillor Brad Clark says the city has not received any notice of a meeting on the issue and the city has done everything the province has asked for.
Yet Clark says, “The ministister stated very clearly that the reason LRT has not moved forward is that Hamilton doesn’t have its act together and puts the blame on us”
This is more smoke and mirrors from the Liberal government now backing out of what it initially promised.
Further proof the Liberals do not have the money for Hamilton’s LRT, and probably never did, but are trying to blame it on an incompetent city council who can’t get its act together.
Which makes you ask the question, how are they going to pay for the rest of promises they’ve made?
In the end, this says no LRT for Hamilton. This Liberal government has become a joke!
I’m Scott Thompson.
Thursday on The Scott Thompson Show!
Is LRT the stadium debacle all over again? Has city council done enough to lead, educate and pursue LRT in Hamilton?
