Will the 'People's Platform' represent the voice of Hamilton's people?
A group of Hamilton citizens are trying to change the local municipal matrix and get potential politicians to listen to the public’s concerns. The Hamilton Civic League, with support from various social activist groups, such the Hamilton Chapter of the Council of Canadians, and the Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability, are encouraging people from across the city to participate in a series of forums over the next three months to identify the issues and possibly a vision for how they want their city to be governed over the next four years. The idea is to craft a list of issues that will become a “Peoples’ Platform” that candidates can either champion once they become councillors, or reject at their possible peril.

Do you think the People’s Platform will influence the municipal election?

There are many more locations where you can get an unobstructed view of the lower city, with free parking. Clearing away the vegetation may help, as long as no erosion takes place."
