Statement by Ryan McGreal

It's simply crazy that the City would respond to a community's call for a safer road crossing with signs instructing pedestrians to go 400 metres out of their way just to cross the street.

It's far past time that this city start actually prioritizing communities and sustainable transportation over vehicular flow-through and thoroughfares.

This decision can be the first of many decisions that transform Hamilton into a truly livable, vibrant place that realizes the city's vision as "the best place in Canada to raise a child", "the best place in Canada to promote innovation", "the best place in Canada to engage citizens", and "the best place in Canada to provide diverse economic opportunities."
