SPECIAL Hamilton City Council GIC Meeting on Light Rail Transit for October 25, 2016

Hamilton City Council is holding a special Council GIC meeting to discuss the Light Rail Transit B-Line construction.

There are 25 registered delegations today. Officially, there is a “reaffirmation” motion on the agenda, however, due to Council turning the LRT into a fiasco, it’s unclear what will happen with the motion, what other motions will be placed on the table, or even what the meaningful purpose of this meeting is.
