The Spec won’t print this letter
This letter writer says that even though many in Hamilton oppose the LRT, Mac students will all welcome it. I’m afraid that she is missing a key point. Our taxes may keep going up and up to keep paying for the LRT but the same students do not pay taxes and all the extra costs will bring more hardship to low-income families and seniors who are already having a very hard time to even put food on the table.
Please do not say ‘But the province is giving Hamilton one billion to pay for the LRT.’ Where on earth do you think that money is coming from? Out of our pockets. LRT has been a pie-in-the-sky idea from the start, just a few on Hamilton council wanting to be remembered.
I doubt this letter will be printed because leaders at The Spectator are, shall we say, leaning a little more toward having the LRT. Frank Kitts, Hamilton
