Remember LRT is meant for tomorrow
RE: Hamilton doesn’t win with this LRT deal (July 13)
The writer says most Hamiltonians are opposed to LRT. Not Mac students; many already bus the route now. They’re going to welcome LRT. What student wouldn’t? Exactly why the train will stop right at the university.
As well, if the writer is upset that King St. will go as an arterial road to drivers, will he really miss King St. after it’s been gone say five or 10 years from now? Or what if transit becomes more affordable than using a car? Would there be a need for King St. (or even other roads) if fewer drivers use them?
I’m not picking on the writer as he makes good points on aspects of LRT.
But it seems the writer has forgotten that LRT is meant for tomorrow. Easy to forget because we’re experiencing it and it’s impacting us now. The next generation of people won’t know of any LRT shortcomings or feel the opposition some of us feel today. Tina Maini, Hamilton
