A poll released this afternoon by Forum Research indicates LRT is opposed by a majority of Hamiltonians. The Poll which yielded 3324 voters who were contacted via Interactive Voice Response between March 30th and April 4th has a margin of error of 1.7% 19 times out of 20. Of decided respondents, 55% opposed LRT with 45% in favour. The city was broken into 4 subsets: Stoney Creek and Glanbrook, Mountain, Lower City and Downtown and Ancaster/Dundas/Flamborough. None of the four geographic regions, including the lower city registered in favour of LRT. The poll also showed that the more familiar respondents were with the LRT project, the more inclined they were to oppose it. Overall the poll said Hamiltonians had a high degree of awareness of the project.

    of course we are opposed, it is foolishness defined……years of construction to rip up roadway in order to install rail…….so buses can continue to follow right behind, picking up the slack, and ensuring service levels that LRT can not provide are maintained.
