It’s good to see the city is making HSR real-time schedules more easily available. However, another piece in that long overdue effort is the pilot bus-only-lane that has one of your letter writers upset. She wants to know “how much did the bus lanes cost the average taxpayer”, “how many use local transit”, and “is it worth the headache.” Perhaps I can help.
Clearly some people don’t think that kids will care or can express their ideas about their school closing on their own.
Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys. Lend me your ears. A school near you is slated to close.
I feel sorry for people who are trying to get around the downtown core of Hamilton.
My sincere thanks for your kind gesture in giving it to the store personnel.
Elementary schools that are local and a short walk for young children are being traded for large schools that are distant.
I spent 30 minutes walking down King Street today with its new bus only lane. I looked at the drivers as they sat idling then moving a car length or two then sitting and idling again. Not one looked happy about losing two lanes of traffic for the bus lane.
re: Parent hijacks elementary school closure meeting (Nov. 7)
All of the dire predictions of the future of Remembrance Day that Gordon Cameron made were also made about the future of ANZAC Day. (For those who are not familiar, instead of Nov. 11, Australia and New Zealand commemorate the landings at Gallipoli in April 1915 by the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps — ANZAC — with parades at dawn. Most shops being forbidden to trade before noon that day).
What is this city thinking?
