Affordable housing and LRT the topic on Bill Kelly Show

Affordable housing has long been touted as one of the spin-off benefits that would accrue from the Hamilton LRT project. Former Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna was very clear on that point when she announced her ministry would contribute $1.7 billion to the Hamilton LRT project earlier this year. But the Memorandum of Understanding that was approved by Hamilton City Councils, General Issue Committee Wednesday had only a vague reference to it, and when asked directly if affordable housing would form part of the agreement with Metrolinx, city staff said it would not. John Best and Bill Kelly talked about the agreement Thursday on the Bill Kelly Show on 900 CHML.

  • It’s clear that this agreement has changed.No surprise here.Its no wonder bailed.Her comments was just hot air.When you hear voices raised to use the police budget for needed housing.That too did not work but Mc Kenna was clear their was money for affordable housing in this LRT plan.Exit that plan.McKenna quit ,good move she does not have to answer any questions.Silence a great political tool.
